Overview

The Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood Teaching is an innovative course that prepares you to become an early childhood teacher and/or a primary school teacher. This gives you flexible and versatile employment options.

During the course, you explore issues, concepts and practices which are common and specific to both early childhood education (including before school settings) and primary school education.

You'll learn about:

  • play and learning sciences
  • language and literacy
  • preparation for teaching
  • health and physical education
  • science in education
  • technology and design for education
  • curriculum and programming
  • maths
  • leadership and advocacy in early childhood contexts
  • humanities, social science and the environment.

This unique teacher education course offers two career options for graduates. It is an initial-teacher education qualification that encompasses working with children from birth to age 12 in both early childhood settings and primary schools.

The course is designed to:

  • develop professional knowledge and skills for teaching children from birth to 12 years
  • prepare you for new and changing educational roles in early childhood and primary schools
  • develop your skills as a reflective teacher
  • explore the connection between theory and practice in early childhood and primary school education
  • ensure continuing awareness of the environmental and cultural influences on teaching and learning in early childhood and primary schools
  • better understand the needs of learners and communities with diverse linguistic and cultural orientations, including Indigenous learners.
