Overview

The Graduate Diploma in Early Childhood Teaching is for university graduates who wish to become an early childhood teacher, educating children in their vital early years of life, from 0-5 years of age.

Students study the Diploma via the Flexible Learning Option (FLO). FLO students study their programme by distance and attend three on-campus intensives.

Students who successfully complete the Diploma will meet the Education Council of Aotearoa New Zealand graduating teachers standards requirements and may be eligible for provisional registration with the Council as a teacher in New Zealand.

UC's College of Education, Health and Human Development has a national and international reputation for producing high-quality teacher graduates based on a 135-year tradition. UC is ranked in the top 100 universities in the world for Education (QS World University Rankings by Subject, 2017).
