The Bachelor of Education Graduate Entry has been nationally accredited through the Teacher Registration Board of the Northern Territory consistent with the standards established by the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL).

Nationally accredited courses will generally allow graduates to seek registration in all Australian states and or territories; however, we do advise that applicants check with their local teacher registration board or authority.

The Bachelor of Education Graduate Entry is for applicants who hold an existing bachelor degree (of at least 3 years duration) in one or more of the areas associated with the Australian Curriculum and/or Early Childhood.

The Secondary stream of this program provides the opportunity to qualify as a secondary school teacher.

This course is designed for:

  • three year trained teachers wishing to upgrade to become a four year trained teacher;
  • teachers who wish to change sectors, for example, a primary school teacher wanting to move into secondary education;
  • those who hold an Advanced Diploma of Teaching / Education who wish to become 4 year trained.
  • those who hold a bachelor degree and are interested in qualifying as a teacher.

This program is available in fast track mode and can be completed in less than two years full-time. It is offered in both internal and external modes.
