Default Irish Teaching Qualification.

Hi I am finishing my HDip in Education in May. Does anyone know is this recognised in NZ, it is the equivilant of the PGCE in the Uk. I am wanting to apply for a Skilled migrant VISA once I have finished in May.

Thanks for any advice

I'll bump this into the main NZ forum for any passing teachers to see.

You could try contacting the Ministry of Education in Wellington, they are very approachable. Apart from that I'd guess its a Pre assessment from NSQA (or pay for a full one) Good luck

Hi there, there may be info on one of the nz immigration website, no doubt there are a few teachers on here that can help. Good luck!

Hi, I'm a secondary teacher with PGCE and my qualification was recongnised by NZQA. If your quals are equivalent of PGCE as you say they are there should be no problems. My partner was a different story. He did a GTP which is NOT recognised over here. After much to-ing and fro-ing he is now back at university in Christchurch training to be a teacher all over again (his 5 years teaching experience in the UK counted for nothing!). Get in touch if you want any more info.
