Overview

The Master of Teaching and Learning is an initial teacher education (ITE) qualification. It is an exciting option for graduates seeking to become early childhood, primary, or secondary teachers and who wish to distinguish themselves from other ITE graduates.

This professional Master’s will equip participants with enhanced research-based knowledge and inquiry skills, experiences of contemporary educational theory and professional practice so they can become teachers with the expertise essential to schools in the 21st century. It is also an ideal pathway for those who have a particular interest in and commitment to supporting learning for diverse learners in mainstream schools, including Māori and Pasifika youth, students for whom English is a second language, and those who experience special learning needs.

The programme is aligned with the Education Council Aotearoa New Zealand graduating teacher standards, and benefits from the 135-year tradition of quality teacher education and educational research conducted in the College of Education, Health and Human Development | Te Rāngai Ako me te Hauora. UC is ranked in the top 150 universities in the world for Education (QS World University Rankings by Subject, 2018).
