Teacher Education

If you are called to be a teacher or work with children, Laidlaw College’s School of Social Practice can equip you for the task.

Our three-year Bachelor of Teaching (Primary) (BTeach) degree is fully accredited by the Education Council NZ, and with Christian thought and practice integrated throughout, will uniquely prepare you to teach across New Zealand’s primary, intermediate and early childhood sectors.

Our one-year Diploma in Christian Education (DipCEd) offers a flexible pathway into the Bachelor’s degree, or can be a standalone qualification for those working with children in churches, kindergartens or in a wide variety of careers. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds who have a desire to work with children in a way that integrates faith with professional teaching practice.
