What will your day in Education look like?

Teachers play a vital role in shaping the future of New Zealand. Whether you're after a career in Early Childhood, Primary or Secondary Teaching, or want to influence social change with the Bachelor of Arts (Education), our programmes will equip you with the skills to find innovative solutions to future challenges.

Check out this video and experience a day in the life of an AUT student and school teacher through the eyes of our graduates and current students.

At AUT's School of Education we are passionate about future-oriented education. In the past, school students needed teachers who could help them master existing knowledge, but today's students need much more than this.

We offer courses for aspiring teachers from early childhood and primary to secondary teaching.

Study education with us to gain sound academic knowledge and also develop essential practical teaching skills. Our bachelor's degrees include 22 weeks of professional practice, and our one-year programmes 15 weeks.

For your placements you will join an early childhood centre or primary school, and experience the classroom and the role of the teacher for yourself. Many of our students are offered jobs during these teaching placements.
