Supporting children to reach their full potential is a truly rewarding endeavour. Primary school teachers play a critical role in inspiring a love of learning, as well as assisting children to develop foundation skills such as literacy and numeracy, and physical and social competencies.
With a focus on evidence-based learning and teaching that has a positive impact on student learning and wellbeing, the Teaching (Primary) program at Macquarie University will support you to become responsive and ready to learn.
And it will enable you to gain the knowledge, skills and qualifications required to teach in primary schools or work in associated fields, such as curriculum planning, educational research and policy development.
So that you’re equipped with the knowledge and skills employers require now and in the future, we design many of our degrees and courses in consultation with a range of industries and sectors. Having such experts involved in creating the fundamentals of your degree or course provides you with opportunities to contextualise your learning, and gain the latest career insights.
