Mt Albert Grammar teacher first to complete EOTC award

Darren Whitehead, head of outdoor education at Auckland’s Mt Albert Grammar School, is the first person in New Zealand to achieve a new national qualification for teachers of education outside the classroom (EOTC). 

“I have been looking for a qualification that matches an EOTC teacher’s skills and experiences, and I feel this really ticks the box,” Darren said. “I already hold an outdoor leader qualification, but I think this new qualification is more interesting and challenged me to think about the whole reason I love working in this field."

The qualification works hand-in-hand with the Ministry of Education’s EOTC Guidelines – Bringing the Curriculum Alive, The New Zealand Curriculum and Te Matauranga o Aotearoa.

For more information on this qualification link to the Skills Active website, or call one of our Learning Support Advisors.
