Maori focus for new teaching degree
The University of Auckland is making raising achievement levels among Maori pupils a key priority in its new Master of Teaching (Primary) qualification.
The one-year-degree, which starts in July, is open to anyone with a Bachelors degree or higher, with an average grade of B or higher.
The education faculty’s deputy dean, Lexie Grudnoff, says it’s designed for top achieving graduates wanting to pursue a rewarding career in teaching.
She says it’s suited to people who want to improve the educational outcomes for our country’s most vulnerable children, especially Maori and Pacific Island children, children with special needs and those living in low socio-economic areas.
There will also be a focus on technology skills and e-learning and teaching.
There’s an information evening on the degree at the Epsom Campus tomorrow.
