CQUniversity - Online

Course outline

This is an ideal course for students who hold a non-education three-year bachelor degree and wish to start a diverse and rewarding teaching career in early childhood settings. Upon completion of this course, graduates will be eligible to teach across the Australian Curriculum in the Preparatory Year to Year 2 in Australian primary schools as well as in early childhood settings such as long day care settings and kindergartens. In addition to building the professional knowledge and skills required to teach, the course is designed to foster dispositions for engaging in and contributing to the teaching profession through a commitment to ongoing professional learning. Students will benefit from work-integrated learning opportunities built into each term of study based on a full-time study load, ensuring students are building real-world skills in the classroom and developing confidence. The design of this course utilises CQUniversity’s three term structure, enabling this course to be completed in one and a half years, so you can start your teaching career sooner. A part-time pathway is also available.
