About the Course

Inspire our next generation in this professional qualification to teach in a primary school with children aged five to 12 years. Gain extensive work-based placements at schools throughout this four-year program, with school placements commencing in your first year. Begin with observing and interacting with small groups of primary school students, and later expand to include patterns of classroom interaction, teacher-developed curriculum materials and whole-school activities. When you undertake professional experience in fourth year, you will be fully competent to teach without close supervision. This degree covers all the key learning areas (primary subject areas), with special attention to the mandatory areas of Aboriginal education, teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) and special education.
