early childhood education educator teaching young children in a centre


From educating and caring for young children to teaching adults, the goals of education remain the same - to deliver both information and inspiration. Students will experience those goals first-hand from some of the most inspirational educators in the business, when they study one of our education programmes.

Wintec education programmes have a high level of practicum, teaching students what they need to know to succeed as well as giving them plenty of opportunities to put theory into practice.
