What is e PCT?

e PCT is a series of online, interactive modules designed specifically to meet the professional learning needs of PCTs/pia, OTTs, mentors and pou tautoko. View full list of modules here.

How does e PCT work?

Upon registering for e PCT you are assigned to one of the zones depending on whether you are a Primary PCT, a Secondary PCT a mentor working in English medium a PCT or mentor in Māori medium or an OTT.

Within each zone there are pathways of modules. You are free to pick and choose modules from your pathway according to your needs and complete at your own pace.
Modules vary in length but should take no longer than 20-30 minutes to complete. Many modules are in all zones, while others are zone specific, The mentor zone has all the modules in both PCT zones plus specific mentor modules.

The Māori medium pathway has English medium modules and Māori medium specific modules.

The OTT zone has modules developed by the Ministry of Education.

How can I use e PCT?

ePCT is designed so that you can save (to your own system) your responses and reflections as you complete the interactive module and therefore have a record of the PLD to use as part of the documentation for full certification (for PCTs) and of the induction and mentoring programme provided (for mentors and PCTs).

You can complete e PCT modules independently, or you may wish to get together with other participants in your school or community to work through and discuss modules together.

Mentors have used the modules with individual PCTs or with groups of PCTs (in larger schools) as part of their ongoing induction and mentoring programme.
