Testimonials:

–          “We were fully supported by the College through the online forums, which acted as a platform to discuss all of our questions with our lecturers. The lecturers were also available on appointment for discussing study related issues face-to-face.”
Pukha Dhawan, Graduate Diploma in Teaching (Early Childhood Education) 

–          “The best part of studying at NZTC was the requirement to work 16 hours a week at a licenced early childhood centre. None of my friends who studied elsewhere had this requirement, and it’s definitely given me the advantage. I worked hard in my home centre; improving my practice and maintaining a positive relationship with my team, and I’m delighted to have secured a full-time role there.”

Priyanka Mathur, Graduate Diploma in Teaching (Early Childhood Education) 

–          “The Postgraduate Diploma in Education (Early Childhood Education) has equipped me significantly to take the lead in a managerial role at a centre.”
Sabrina Sultana, Postgraduate Diploma in Education (Early Childhood Education) 

–          “The curriculum is systematic, thought provoking and innovative; leading the learner to postmodern concepts. At NZTC each student is encouraged to pave his or her own way within the framework of the well-defined curriculum to explore knowledge that is included in national as well as world literature.”
Mohanan Koodathinkal, Graduate Diploma in Teaching (Early Childhood Education)
