  2. Sorry forgot to enter my name with my question.

    thank you

  3. I am in my last year of studying for a degree in Early Childhood Education. Am looking for a teaching position in kindergartens. I have spent 5wks on practicum on my first year at Katoa kindergarten and again this year. My time with them was the highlights of all my practicums in the last three years.

    I am a domestic student living in New Zealand for 40 years. I am required to sit the IELTS test before I can be registered. However, my question is Do you accept applications from new graduates who are not registered, and required to sit IELTS test?
