Learn to lead change in education with our postgrad programmes

We believe in lifelong learning and so our programmes are designed to take place alongside your busy work schedule as an educator. We help you build your digital toolkit so you can work smarter, not harder.

On this page we share more about our three postgraduate programmes for teachers so you can see which is right for you. 

When choosing to study, consider the following things:

How long do you want to study for?
How much time can you commit to?
How do you like to learn? Online, face-to-face or blended?
What qualification do you hope to achieve?

Why study with The Mind Lab?

Founded by Frances Valintine in 2013, The Mind Lab was established to equip the teachers of today with the skills, knowledge and confidence to best teach the children of tomorrow. 

We are an NZQA-accredited tertiary education provider and deliver courses to hundreds of kiwi educators every year. Our Postgraduate Certificate in Digital & Collaborative Learning still remains the most popular postgraduate teaching programme in Aotearoa.

Hear from our Programme Leads

Monique Pearson (Interim General Manager) sat down virtually with Dave Parsons (National Postgraduate Director) and Herbert Thomas (Programme Lead – Master of Contemporary Education) to have a chat about the various programmes on offer for teachers of Aotearoa.

Rather than signing up for an information session, we created this video with all the best bits so you can watch in your own time, and fast-forward through bits that aren’t relevant to you!
