Early Childhood Education

Health and Wellbeing
NZTC began delivering Health and Wellbeing programs in 2017 to support the healthcare sector. Accredited by NZQA, NZTC’s Level 3, 4, and 5 programs provide Healthcare Assistants with the knowledge and skills to support their clients and are recognised by the pay equity settlement.
Flexible and Online Study Options
NZTC’s qualifications are offered via a number of learning modes to suit the students learning style and lifestyle. With the choice of online, blended learning, and college based options, students are able to balance their work and family commitments around their studies.
Online learning enables students to obtain an NZQA approved, high quality qualification without face-to-face attendance requirements. Study is conducted via NZTC’s unique online learning environment, NZTC Online, and all of the courses are completed and assessed online. Studying online is not isolating, as students are part of an online learning community where they can interact with other students and lecturers through online discussion forums.
Blended learning combines the flexibility of online learning with face-to-face learning and practical experience, which includes tutorials, block courses, supervised field practice and work experience.
College based learning requires students to attend a minimum number of lectures each week at one of NZTC’s campuses located in Auckland and Christchurch.
Students are at the heart of everything that happens at NZTC and they pride themselves on the range of support services available. These include extensive academic support, a dedicated IT Help Desk team, with extensive hours for online learning support, and pastoral support to assist students with any queries.
Highly Sought After Graduates
