The Bachelor of Education (Primary) equips graduates with an accredited professional teaching qualification accredited by TEQSA and NESA (formerly BOSTES).

Do you love children and get a thrill when you see the lights go on in their hearts and minds? Are you excited about seeing children grow and learn? Are you keen to equip your own future with our accredited professional qualification to teach in Independent or Public Primary Schools?

This program is for undergraduates who sense a calling to primary school teaching and have reached the appropriate level in their prior studies. This program is a new one but why not hear and read what some of our students are saying about our program?

We are passionate about tailoring our learning and teaching to students’ individual needs, in small classes where each student is known and mentored by their subject’s lecturer. Students are never a number!

Our signature delivery style is blended learning, where students come on campus for their one week’s face-to-face seminar for each subject and complete the remainder of their study online.  However, all of our subjects can now be studied fully online, with the exception of the professional experience placements which require 60 days in schools. 

Students can also apply to study under our new learning model called the Clinical Teaching Model. This is an apprenticeship style of "on the job" learning whereby a student is able to stay in their own community, become part of a local school and have a mentor teacher and learn online. In such a setting students can find relevance to what they are learning, practice new skills and be supported by their community in the process.

Our Diploma of Arts is a one year program nested within the Bachelor of Education (Primary) for students seeking an alternative pathway.
