In the Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood and Primary), you’ll learn the skills and knowledge required to teach early childhood and primary schooling. You’ll be equipped to negotiate the changing context of teaching and learning in the 21st century, with innovative and creative teaching methods that make expert use of emerging technologies.
You’ll gain a broad body of knowledge, studying the contexts of education, cultural-historical perspectives and child development, as well as units focusing on specific subject disciplines. The course offers specialisations in Mathematics and English.
All our bachelor degrees include a guaranteed Work Integrated Learning opportunity, which could be a placement, internship or industry-linked project. This degree includes a mandatory work placement as a professional accreditation requirement.
You’ll complete 91 days of placement throughout the course to put into practice the leadership and management skills you’ll learn in your studies. Graduates will be eligible for employment in a range of early childhood and primary settings, including children’s centres, kindergartens, preschools and early learning centres, as well as government, Catholic and independent primary schools in Australia.
