Our College of Education Invercargill Campus is small and whānau friendly, and has been providing initial teacher education since the 1980s.
A range of teacher education programmes and education support services
The campus delivers a range of teacher education programmes in Early Childhood Primary, and Bicultural Education. Experienced teacher educators endorse a philosophy of collaboration and ethic of care when working with and alongside teacher education students, and mentor/associate teachers in schools and early childhood centres.
Specialised programme in Te Pōkai Mātauranga o te Ao Rua (Primary Bicultural Education)
Available only at our Invercargill campus is the bicultural teacher education programme – Te Pōkai Mātauranga o te Ao Rua. This programme specialises in te ao Māori, enabling graduates to teach in primary, intermediate, bilingual and/or Māori-medium schools (depending on a graduate’s ability in te reo Māori).
Subject studies, education papers and education support services
Selected specialised Subject Studies and Education papers are also available to students.
A small dedicated team of Education Support Services facilitators – who work in schools and support teachers in classrooms – are based at the campus.
