Program Overview

Program Description:
Unique and diverse internship placements are customized to meet your needs and correspond to your academic and professional background. Life in New Zealand is full of adventure and its location makes it easy to take a weekend trip to the South Island, Australia, or even Fiji!

This program will provide interns with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a New Zealand classroom. This will enable interns to gain pre-requisite classroom experience and gain firsthand knowledge of the New Zealand primary and secondary school system. Plus, the teaching of te reo Maori (indigenous language) and culture, along with other unique components of the local grade and high school education, will make this a valuable learning experience for interns as well.

Interns will be placed in vibrant, inner city schools that host an exciting mix of nationalities which offer classroom-based experiences as teacher aids. Interns will provide valuable assistance to teachers in their dynamic classroom environment and may also work with special needs children since they are mainstreamed at most schools and require more attention.
