    Thumbs up Is tesol recognised as a teaching qualification in nz?

    Hi folks,
    I have a first degree in biological science(BSc.) and also a TESOL qualification.
    I want to teach in nz.Will the TESOL be recognized as a teaching certificate?.This is because I have not done Education in my first degree(BSc.).

    It looks like TESOL is known in NZ, but whether it would be good enough as a recognised qualification for INZ purposes, I wouldn't like to say. If you haven't got a full degree in teaching, I doubt it would be enough.

    Thanks motherbear,
    but the situation is that I have a full degree in Biological science but want to know if TESOL(certificate) in addition to my full degree in biological science is enough to be seen as a teaching qualification.In other words, TESOL is the teaching qualification here in addition to my BSc.

    Hi gowutheo
    It may depend on your TESOL qualification, and this will need to be assessed by NZQA, as to what it is equivalent to in NZ.
    Apply for an International Qualifications Assessment NZQA

    It will also help for you to contact the New Zealand Teachers Council for advice on the requirements.
    Non-New Zealand teaching qualifications check

    For comparison, there are many TESOL Certificate courses in NZ, some are only a few weeks long and others run for a full trimester.
    Here are a couple of examples:
    Graduate Certificate in TESOL
    Fern English - NZMA Certificate in TESOL
