The program has been developed with a strong focus on ‘classroom-ready’ graduates, and allows you to begin completing your professional practice experience in the first term of study. Graduates of this program can look forward to being experts at ‘learning’ and the management of learning. Our students are taught how to design and implement learning strategies to achieve educational outcomes for students. You will learn about how to teach reading, numeracy, science and literacy, the importance of play and managing e-learning in the classroom. There are a diverse range of career opportunities, however graduates will be specialised in early childhood and the learning management of younger students.
You may choose to study a degree suitable for the public school system or the Catholic school* strand. The Catholic strand provides you with knowledge required to teach in Catholic schools or other Christian educational settings by providing opportunities for students to develop a sound knowledge-base and understanding of the Christian values.
* Students who aim to pursue a career within the Catholic education sector should seek information from the Program Coordinator prior to the commencement of their second year studies. Students must undertake an interview to be accepted in the Catholic system
