The Bachelor of Education (K-12 Teaching) is a unique dual sector teacher education course that offers two career pathways for graduates. It is an undergraduate teacher education qualification that encompasses working in both Primary Schools and Secondary Schools. All candidates complete a NESA or National primary specialisation with a curriculum focus.
