Default Teaching Qualification better UK or NZ

Which would be best gained if converting from masters of science to specialize in science teaching?

Ideally focused on longer term teaching in UK

Default Re: Teaching Qualification better UK or NZ

Teaching qualifications are not interchangeable, ie you cannot teach in NZ on a UK qualification or vice versa.

Therefore if you are going to teach in the UK you should get a UK qualification.

If you are going to teach in NZ first, you need to get an NZ qualification, and then get that recognised in the UK.

"Science teaching" would be secondary level so you would need to have content units, and then a degree program leading to a secondary teaching qualification. This would include a 45-day final teaching practicum (in NZ).

Universities - shockingly - aren't always aware of what content units are needed for their prospective teachers. Whatever they tell you make sure you verify it with the Department of Education (not the registration board).

Wife was considering a transition course here in NZ for 12 months, but considers the general state of teaching so poor she would rather await the return to the UK.
