About

If you already hold a bachelor degree in a field other than education, the Teaching program from Charles Darwin University can help you to become a teacher in two years. 

Overview

At CDU, you can study your Master of Teaching online or on campus, part time or full time. This makes it easier to study where, when and how it suits you.

On graduating, you'll be eligible to register as a teacher in all states and territories in Australia.

The Teaching program from Charles Darwin University qualifies you to teach early childhood (birth to year 7), primary (transition to year 7) or secondary (year 8 to 12). Before you start studying, you'll need to choose the stream that suits your career goals and interests.

The course prepares you for new and changing roles as an educator. You will develop continuing awareness of the environmental and cultural influences on teaching and learning. You'll also explore the needs of learners and communities with diverse linguistic and cultural orientations, including Indigenous learners.

As a teacher, your levels of personal literacy and numeracy will be broadly equivalent to the top 30% of the Australian population.

The Early Childhood and Primary stream has a requirement of 70 to 80 days of Professional experience

The Secondary stream has a requirement of 60 to 80 days of Professional experience.

Professional recognition

The Master of Teaching has been accredited through the Teacher Registration Board of the Northern Territory. It is consistent with the standards established by the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership for the Accreditation of Initial Teacher Education Programs in Australia.

The Early Childhood and Primary Teaching stream in this program is approved with the Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) .

Graduates of the course will be eligible for teacher registration across all Australian State and Territory jurisdictions (subject to meeting other eligibility criteria such as the National Literacy and Numeracy test for Initial Teacher Education aligned with Teacher Registration Requirement, English proficiency and suitability to teach).

Before applying for admission, students intending to seek employment should have the relevant State/Territory employment authority (eg State or Territory Department of Education, or Catholic Education Office) confirm their eligibility and suitability for employment.
