The Master of Teaching (Primary) is for graduates who want to become primary school teachers and have an appropriate undergraduate degree. It provides a pre-service education for beginning teachers. The Graduate Certificate in Religious Education is designed to help students meet accreditation requirements to teach religious education in Catholic Schools in addition to their other teaching areas.

Graduates are eligible for employment in Catholic and other faith-based schools, government and non-government schools.

This Teaching (Primary) - Religious Education programme from Australian Catholic University  prepares primary school teachers who are reflective, independent and flexible thinkers who can apply their skills to improve curriculum offerings and advance their community’s education.
