Master of Primary Teaching

As a primary school teacher you'll bring the foundations of knowledge to young learners. You'll understand and positively apply to students (Kindergarten–Grade 6) the key disciplines that underpin the national framework for learning and teaching.

If you are a graduate from a non-education background, this teacher education degree will give you the professional preparation to teach in primary school and early years settings.

Students will learn the theory and practice of teaching, including the characteristics of learners, the social and educational contexts of education, curriculum studies and professional experience in relevant settings.

Master of Secondary Teaching

If you are a graduate from a non-education background, perhaps seeking a career change, and wish to teach in secondary school settings, this new degree will provide you with the necessary skills and knowledge you need to register as a teacher.

You will learn the theory and practice of teaching, as well as about the characteristics of learners and teachers and the social contexts of education. The degree includes education studies, curriculum studies in two nominated teaching areas, and professional experience in secondary school settings.

Unique Features of the Program

Experience through work-integrated learning
The Griffith School of Education and Professional Studies difference lies in linking theory and practice through work-integrated learning. Students will develop teaching skills in exciting and varied locations and through an intensive internship, take responsibility for planning, teaching and assessing students in a real school classroom.

Both the Master of Primary Teaching and the Master of Secondary Teaching are two-year programs offered over 1.5 years.
