Program overview

The course has a strong ICT, English and Mathematical focus with a student-centred approach to teaching and learning. The course is organised into three components: Core education Your core education units will comprise the bulk of the course and are taken throughout the four years. You will cover areas such as planning, implementing and evaluating learning experiences and programs; the curriculum learning areas; classroom management and teaching strategies; theories of learning; Indigenous education; and teaching children with diverse leaning needs. There is a strong emphasis on creating and nurturing an inquiry approach and analytic and critical thinking. Electives There are two main elective streams: The Catholic education stream (3 units), which provides you with the background to apply for teaching positions in Catholic schools. The Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) stream (3 units), which provides you with the background and skills to teach students from Non-English Speaking Backgrounds (NESB). You may choose electives from between these two streams or from other electives offered. You can also choose elective units from across the University, for example, psychology speech and hearing or indigenous education. Teaching practice School experience forms a significant part of the degree. You will work in schools in various capacities and for varying lengths of time throughout the program, culminating a final term-long internship (usually 10 weeks). During the internship, you will have the major responsibility for a class, under the supervision of a mentor teacher. There are often opportunities for a country practice or an interstate or international internship.
