“Effective pedagogy = teacher actions promoting student learning.” (NZC, p. 34) 

Our programme for Year Two Provisionally Certified Teachers is designed to deepen and extend your understanding of current and emerging teaching trends. Each session will be coordinated to work with you around ‘what's on top', questions, issues and your content suggestions. They will be joined by industry experts, and you may split into smaller groups according to your year level or interests. 

First session:
Will investigate what effective pedagogy means and how you might achieve this in your classroom.
Aspects that may be covered include: 

  • What is effective pedagogy?

  • Teaching as inquiry: how and why?

  • Creating an inclusive, supportive and culturally safe classroom environment

  • Creating a thinking culture in your classroom

  • Reflective practice in yourself and your students

  • Facilitating shared learning including cooperative learning activities.

We will also talk about the Year Two PCT programme that you have enrolled in and Ministry expectations for this period, and give out key documents for your year with us. Like all your sessions, there will be plenty of opportunities for sharing, questions and discussion with your peers and facilitators. 

ERO cites “regular opportunities to interact with other beginning teachers” as being one of the key factors identified by PCTs as helping their professional growth for effective teaching. 

Enroling for all sessions is strongly recommended so that PRTs can build a supportive network and benefit from the regular goal-setting and reflection aspects of the package. The full package is priced at $300(members) / $375 (non-members). To enrol in a full year package (4 sessions) click on the link below under 'Associated Course Packages' - Course fees exclude GST.
