Building, Construction and Allied Trades Skills (BCATS) are a suite of Level 1-3 unit standards registered on the NQF that are tailor-made for schools.
This makes BCATS the perfect choice since:
For schools, BCATS are externally moderated via cluster moderation workshops.
Waihanga Ara Rau run just over 30 regional moderation workshops. Alongside external moderation of assessment, professional development and networking are a key focus.
Worried that technology teachers are a dying breed?
The University of Canterbury (UC) now offer an alternative entry pathway into their Graduate Diploma of Teaching and Learning. Spread the news across your networks.
We all know skilled and passionate technology teachers are in short supply. UC’s alternative entry pathway recognises trade experience and qualifications in lieu of the typically required bachelor’s degree. Moreover, the alternative entry pathway includes a distance option, and the qualification may be completed full-time in one year or part-time over two years.
