Studied your degree, but want to move into education instead? The Bachelor of Education (Graduate Entry) is the qualification you are after.

The Bachelor of Education (Graduate Entry) - Early Childhood and Primary Teaching, Primary Teaching or Secondary Teaching - aligns with the Australian Professional Standards for Graduating Teachers and is designed to complement your degree and upskill you for a career in education or as primary or high school teacher.

This course prepares you for new and changing roles as an educator and it ensures:

  • you have continuing awareness of the environmental and cultural influences on teaching and learning.
  • you understand the needs of learners and communities with diverse linguistic and cultural orientations, including Indigenous learners.

The early childhood and primary teaching stream have an early childhood focus yet your skills and knowledge will also cross over into primary school settings.

You will possess levels of personal literacy and numeracy broadly equivalent to the top 30% of the population.
