The degree is designed to build upon tertiary qualifications and experience, enabling students to complete a teaching qualification in as little as 2 years.

The secondary teaching specialisation requires students to choose two curriculum teaching areas, which are determined by the discipline(s) undertaken in the student’s undergraduate degree.

You will be required to undertake a number of Professional Experience placements totalling 60 days. This will give you the opportunity to apply the theoretical and practical skills that you have learnt in a safe and supportive environment.

The program is informed by core theoretical knowledge, evidence-based practice and underpinned by a strong theory-practice nexus enacted in collaboration with appropriate employing authorities.
