Host Schools

New Zealand Graduate School of Education cooperates with a group of supportive schools that share the vision of quality teacher training through a strong school-based component.  NZGSE is committed to providing a variety of schools for its teacher interns and has a deliberate policy of finding settings that will challenge interns to quickly develop their teaching skills.

The host schools used include state schools of all types, integrated schools and independent schools.  Viewed together, the schools draw their students from the full range of socioeconomic levels and ethnic groups in Christchurch and Canterbury.  So far, 119 schools have participated as host schools for NZGSE teacher interns completing their extended teaching practice. A list of the host schools is included in the information pack.
