New Zealand Tertiary College (NZTC) offers a number of qualifications that do not require practical teaching components. These qualifications sit within our education stream and don't lead to NZ teacher registration but simple pathway options are available for students who wish to transfer into our Bachelor of Teaching (ECE) or Graduate Diploma in Teaching (ECE).

Below is an overview of our education stream qualifications:
