Description of Teaching (Primary)
Enhance your undergraduate degree with this two-year teaching qualification and graduate with the skills you need to work as a primary school teacher across Australia.
You'll gain teaching skills across physical education, technology, science, humanities, literacy and numeracy. Your subjects will also cover contemporary teaching methods, curriculum theory, lesson planning and classroom management, all of which will influence your thinking when you start working in the classroom.
Graduates of the graduate-entry teaching degree are qualified to teach in schools and other education and training bodies in Australia and overseas (subject to registration). Those with postgraduate teaching qualifications are highly regarded for their detailed knowledge of curriculum and their highly developed teaching skills. Our teaching courses are accredited with the Victorian Institute of Teaching.

Requirements for Teaching (Primary)
Applicants must hold an Australian Bachelor degree or approved equivalent. English competency is required and Year 11 Mathematics is recommended.
The Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development requires a satisfactory criminal record check for all teacher education students undertaking practicum requirements in Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development schools. It is expected that equivalent requirements will exist for all other Victorian schools and for schools in other states. Students upon first enrolling in teacher education courses will be required to complete a ‘Working with Children Check’. Students must provide a certified copy of their valid Working with Children card prior to undertaking teaching placements. Confirmation of a criminal record may jeopardise a student’s ability to gain access to a suitable, or any, practicum placement(s) and may therefore delay or prevent completion of the course.
Work Experience for Teaching (Primary)
No work experience is required.
