A passionate, skilled and qualified early childhood teacher has an important role in the learning and development of infants, toddlers and young children. The early years of a young child's life lay the foundation for life-long learning. This programme will allow you to undertake study to attain a teaching qualification while being employed or working voluntarily in an early childhood setting.
Annemarie Gathergood, Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood Education)
I wanted a professional qualification that was widely recognised in the early childhood sector and opened doors for a career. I liked that the programme offered hands on experience while training.
It's important to me that we provide our young children with an environment that nutures their creativity and supports their learning effectively. "Let them learn through play and be children".
My research over 25 years has focused upon theorising within history of education in relation to higher education, gender, transnational methodology and influences on school curriculum as well as childhood studies. A second research pathway has emerged from commissioned collaborative research on school readiness; child health, youth, education and training through my role at EIT.

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.
