Boost your career by upgrading your ECE diploma to a degree.
This is a 1–2-year part-time programme for those with an ECE teaching diploma who would like to upgrade to a Level 7 Bachelor of Teaching (ECE). Being part-time, you can continue to work while you study for the degree, but there are no set weekly early childhood service attendance requirements.
The programme will deepen your knowledge of:
• curriculum inquiry
• inclusion, exclusion and marginalisation in ECE settings
• infants and toddlers
• mātauranga Māori
• leadership in early childhood education.
Please note that, because this programme does not include a practicum component, it is not a pathway to teacher registration.

- did not receive your diploma from Te Tari Puna Ora o Aotearoa/New Zealand Childcare Association (NZCA) – the previous name for Te Rito Maioha
- are unable to demonstrate competency in te reo Maori me nga tikanga Maori.
