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. 

"Caring for children has been a big part of my life to date, I took the leap and embarked on my degree in Early Childhood Education at Wintec. I decided it was time to take the step to become fully qualified. I love the vibe - the support system has been nothing but amazing. I feel safe, comfortable and like I have a sense of belonging here."
