Course summary

With a child-centred philosophy, supported by up-to-date evidence on best practice, this combined degree produces teachers who understand the attributes of inclusive education, the development and learning of young people, and the importance of life-long learning. It focuses on the values, disposition, knowledge and practical teaching skills required to provide a high quality educational environment for children, and to make a difference in the lives and future of the next generation.

Graduates are equipped to teach in primary schools and will complete discipline and curriculum studies in English; mathematics; human society and its environment; science and technology; creative arts; and personal development, health and physical education. They will also study literacy and numeracy, child development, and teaching students with diverse needs. They will have the option to major in Special Education or Australian Indigenous Education.

Students will complete a number of practical teaching experiences throughout the degree in order to put theory into practice and to observe and reflect on the dynamics of the education environment.
