The School of Education offers a range of options for those who wish to pursue a career in secondary school teaching. These courses are approved by the NSW Institute of Teachers and are nationally recognised.
The Bachelor of Education (Secondary) is a two year full-time, (or part- time equivalent) graduate entry degree available for those who wish to become qualified secondary school teachers. A feature of this course is the opportunity it provides for graduates to study additional units in a designated teaching area related to a secondary school subject/s.
The Graduate Diploma of Education provides graduates who hold an appropriate degree with the opportunity to become a secondary teacher during one year of full-time, or two years of part-time study. Applicants must hold a completed undergraduate degree with a major in the subject area they wish to teach.
Combined degrees with the Bachelor of Education (Secondary) are available in a number of disciplines for those who do not already have an undergraduate degree. Combining a Bachelor of Education (Secondary) degree with a degree in Arts, Contemporary Music, Science, Sport and Exercise Science or Visual Arts allows students to undertake specialised studies in an area or areas of interest while concurrently preparing them to teach in secondary schools.
The Bachelor of Technology Education is a specialised degree developed to prepare students as secondary school teachers of design and technology, food technology, textile and design, computing studies, industrial technology (timber and metal), graphics and multimedia technology.
Please note: If you have completed or are currently completing an undergraduate degree and require information relating to the undergraduate requirement for teaching specific subject areas in Secondary Schools, please review the NSW Institute of Teachers requirements.
