Technological and social changes are driving demand for high quality teachers, educators and education support roles in New Zealand and internationally.

The opportunity to inspire the minds of children, young people and communities in Aotearoa New Zealand, and encourage a lifelong love of learning is available to anyone who chooses to teach, whether at early childhood, primary or secondary level. People who are energetic, committed, creative, have good literacy and numeracy skills and enjoy working with children and young people, will find teaching to be a positive and varied career.

The study of Education can lead to may opportunities beyond the classroom. The study of Education and Psychology can lead to opportunities such as educational psychologists, advisers and researchers in curriculum development, learning and development specialists.
