Southern Cross is dedicated to fostering excellence to develop outstanding teachers for the future. We enjoy strong, collaborative links with teachers, schools and other educational organisations across the region, and with the national and international educational community.
Our new Bachelor of Education is a gateway degree to a career as a registered teacher in Australia. Foundation year provides a solid grounding in literacy, numeracy and pedagogy and contemporary issues in education. Students then choose either a single or combined specialisation in:
- Early Childhood/Primary
- Primary (kindergarten to Year 6)
- Primary/Secondary (English Primary Specialisation and one subject in secondary)
- Secondary (choose two teaching subjects)
- Technology (choose from Design and Technology or Food and Fibre plus secondary teaching area).
Also new for 2022 is our Bachelor of Early Childhood Education. This three-year qualification is designed for work in early childhood settings with children from six-weeks to six-years old.
