This is a conjoint Massey University/EIT programme. Graduate students pursue a prescribed set of courses designed to enable them to become specialist teachers in secondary schools.
Madeleine Shuker, Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood Education) Graduate
I chose EIT not only because of the Year 13 study grant but also because it has an internationally reputable degree and is a very field-based programme. I hope to make a valued contribution to society and to have a positive impact on the children I teach. EIT was the best decision I made to guarantee me a bright future.

HAWKE’S BAY SCHOOLS TAKE ON LOCALLY TRAINED TEACHERS
Staff at Napier Boy’s High School includes eight Hawke’s Bay trained teachers – “a pretty good muster,” says principal Ross Brown.
Four who did their teaching training on the EIT Hawke’s Bay campus last year – Emma Smith (teaching science and chemistry), Carol Leung (music), Rex Newman (science) and Peter Robin (Te reo Māori) – say their very close and supportive class keep in touch.
Like the others, Nick Swain – into his second year of teaching mathematics at Boys’ High – found his experience of EIT “fantastic” and the teaching programme a “thorough” preparation for a career in education.
All five are provisionally registered teachers. The other three Hawke’s Bay trained teachers are Michael Hay (agriculture), Rachel Hammond (science, biology and physics) and Paul Garland (technology).
Coordinator of the Graduate Diploma of Teaching (Secondary) Walt Rutgers says about three-quarters of those who do the conjoint Massey University/EIT programme go into the local teaching scene.
