A unique feature of the Primary and Early Childhood programs is the capacity for you to gain a nationally recognised Diploma of Children’s Services after the first year, allowing you to work as qualified early learning professionals in childcare centres throughout the remainder of your degree studies.
CQUniversity’s new Diploma of Junior Secondary Teaching (Specialisation) has been designed to address the needs of primary school teachers looking to transition into junior secondary teaching. This new program is based on a unique model of supported on-site school delivery and distance delivery, involving expert school-based teaching staff on-site and university staff online.
The integration of education with almost all industries provides an opportunity for you to be able to pursue a career in something you are passionate about or talented in. For example, if you are a talented musician, or have a keen interest in sport or the outdoors, you may consider teaching as a career direction as it allows you to explore your passion through teaching others.
Practice is effectively integrated with theory providing you with a thorough understanding of education and ensuring you are classroom ready. Due to the close and continuing relationship between schools and CQUniversity, we have the support of schools in accepting students on practical placements. You will benefit from frequent contact between yourself and staff, as well as smaller class sizes.
