Job Success

The media talk sometimes portrays gloomy job prospects for new teacher graduates.  This sparked us at NZGSE to update our own job success statistics.  The facts are compelling.  We keep accurate infromation on our graduates' destinations and we know that over 97% of NZGSE graduates go on to work as teachers.  It’s the graduates of other programmes who are missing out.

What about Christchurch?  Because we are based In Christchurch, many of our graduates want to teach here after they finish.  You will know that many children have left the city since the earthquakes, and that the proposed school restructure is causing anxiety.  But our graduates continue to win positions in Christchurch.  We have not seen any reduction in the success of NZGSE graduates winning jobs here since the quakes.

When school principals make appointments, they are looking for teachers who are known to be professional and fully competent.  That is what NZGSE teacher training prepares you to be and explains why our job success rate is so high.
