This certificate is designed to be taken part-time by busy teachers and cross-sector professionals with an education focus to their work. Complete just two courses to gain your first postgraduate qualification. A broad range of courses is available: from digital learning, mentoring, and early childhood, through to educational change, literacy, sport, health and wellbeing, second language learning and supporting Māori learners.
Flexible delivery options and learning modes are also available to meet the increasingly diverse needs of our communities. Students with a GPA of 5 or higher who wish to go into further study can credit the postgraduate certificate courses towards a Master of Education, provided the certificate has not been awarded.
Study the Inclusive Education specialisation
One in four people in Aotearoa have a disability. This diversity is now represented in local early childhood settings and schools and teachers are expected to have the conceptual, culturally responsive and applied knowledge base needed to teach in inclusive environments.
In this specialisation, you’ll develop advanced knowledge and capabilities in inclusive practices to support diverse learners in educational settings. You’ll also extend your research skills through an inquiry-based approach and gain the skills and knowledge needed to take leading roles in effective planning, coordination and management of projects and in professional learning.
