Structure of the Te Aho Tātairangi: Bachelor of Teaching and Learning Kura Kaupapa Māori

Te Aho Tātairangi Bachelor of Teaching and Learning Kura Kaupapa Māori is a parts-based qualification. That means you must complete the first part and meet some requirements, before moving to the second and again to the third.

If you study full-time, you’ll take 120 credits per year or 60 credits per semester.

Due to the specialised nature of this qualification, and as different institutions conduct their qualification in different ways, courses are not always transferable from one to another.

Māori language and Te Aho Matua

A distinctive feature of this degree is that courses are taught using the medium of the Māori language through which students are expected to participate in this language.

The teaching and delivery of all the courses will reflect Te Aho Matua.

Location of study

Although this qualification is offered via distance learning, we do require that you are in New Zealand for the entire duration. The qualification and practicum placements within it are relevant to the New Zealand curriculum (as it is New Zealand teacher registration that is the ultimate goal) and hence must be done within New Zealand.

Also, as practical and theoretical courses are intertwined you cannot do the theory/pedagogy courses first and then return to do the practical courses at a later date. Without full access to the New Zealand curriculum Te Marautanga o Te Aho Matua you would also be hugely disadvantaged in your assignments.

Practicum

Teaching practice is a compulsory component of the degree, and you’ll be placed in Kura Kaupapa Te Aho Matua immersion classrooms for the same hours as teachers work, ie, approximately 8.00am - 5.00pm daily. You’ll be required to pass all teaching practice components of the qualification and associated course work. You may be required to travel for up to an hour each way for this student practicum. Travel for practica is your responsibility.

  • You should review the regulations for this qualification.
  • Contact us if you have any questions.
