Teacher Training Programme

10 Nov Teacher Training Programme

Want to make a difference? Become a teacher!

Pakuranga College has joined an exciting new initiative with a group of Auckland Schools, offering a new way to train to become a secondary school teacher with a scholarship and university fees paid.

The school-based teacher training programme works in partnership with the University of Waikato. You will spend one year completing coursework with the University of Waikato while working onsite at Pakuranga College, being mentored by experts in your subject area. You will be fully immersed in college life with a job offer at the end.

Aimed at those seeking a career change and those who have finished university but haven’t yet found their career, the scheme aims to reduce barriers to the profession and offers a $12,500 scholarship and we pay the university course fees. In addition to this there is scope for a small amount of paid work as a teacher aide to support your learning and your pocket.

If you or anyone you know might be interested in finding out more about the programme please check out the website School Based Training or contact Kelly Bigwood Deputy Principal at Pakuranga College bgw@pakuranga.school.nz
