The TER programme is designed for two groups:
- Provisionally certificated teachers who want to apply for another provisional practising certificate six years or more after becoming registered. The programme will assist those who have limited or no teaching experience since completing their initial teacher education qualification to become up to date on current education initiatives and ensure they are well prepared to teach successfully.
- Teachers who completed their initial teacher education qualification six years ago or more and are applying to become registered. Qualified but non-practising teachers are likely to have minimal teaching experience within the compulsory education system since they completed their qualification. This is because, for most teaching positions in New Zealand, it is a requirement to have a current practising certificate.
If you have questions or want to discuss your individual situation, please email TER@educationcouncil.org.nz.
All applicants must undergo a children’s worker safety check as required under the Vulnerable Children Act 2014.
