If you are a good communicator, love having fun with children and passionate about sharing a love of learning – then this is the course for you! As a secondary school teacher, you are responsible for educating and guiding students as they prepare for the real world.

This course focuses on the skills and knowledge needed to teach in high schools in line with the Australian National Curriculum. It meets both the national and local need for teachers committed to improving educational outcomes for all children and young adults. It emphasises:

  • Indigenous perspectives
  • the school curriculum
  • contemporary approaches to issues in education such as inclusivity
  • child and adolescent development
  • promoting positive behaviour
  • improving the teaching-learning relationship in the classroom
  • raising awareness of issues surrounding Indigenous education and developing an informed, evidence-based approach to learning and teaching in secondary school settings.

  • science
  • humanities
  • visual arts
  • digital technology

The coursework is a mixture of discipline-specific curriculum and pedagogical studies, general education studies and professional experience.
