Course overview

Make a positive difference in the education and upbringing of the next generation of young people. Our combined degree will qualify you to work with children through their formative years – in early childhood centres and in primary school settings.

Alongside primary education, you’ll explore the principles and pedagogies of teaching in early childhood education and care (ECEC); the development and learning of children across the life span; the role of families and communities in ECEC; your role as an educational leader in ECEC settings; with significant blocks of in-school professional placement.

This course includes a specialisation in English, in addition to the Australian curriculum studies in English; Mathematics; Science and Technology; Human Society and Its Environment; Creative Arts; and Personal Development, Health and Physical Education.

The block professional teaching experiences, combined with volunteer activities and embedded site visits will provide you with a deep understanding about the role of a teacher. As you will be interacting with children and young people, upon enrolment you will be expected to apply and attain a valid Working with Children Check for your state or territory. See professional experience requirements.

As a graduate, you will be qualified as an early childhood educator and a primary school teacher in Queensland and New South Wales. Please note your application must include a personal statement outlining your non-academic capabilities. See education non-academic requirements.
