Rochelle Frame, Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood Education) Student

"EIT has an easy going atmosphere, small classes where the teacher actually make and effort to get to know their students.  My qualification means that I am pretty much guaranteed a job when I am out.  I can use it all over New Zealand and the world".

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 

video-placeholder

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.
