I'm keen to introduce a course - is there a teacher in ... region I can talk to?
Great news that you are thinking about introducing psychology to your student, there is a lot of support out there for you to access. Regions - NZAPT is currently creating and facilitating local Network Hubs for schools who offer psychology in their schools. Click on the Network Hubs page to find your local schools. Facebook - another great source of support is Psychology NZ secondary schools Facebook group. This Facebook page is for all NZ psychology teachers to ask question, share useful resources and articles. NZAPT - you are always welcome to email NZAPT with any questions you may have and attend our annual conference in November.
How do I train to be a psych teacher?
Unfortunately there is currently no formal qualification to teach psychology in New Zealand. Teachers normally gain a teaching qualification in another area and then apply to teach psychology once they have gained their teaching qualification.
