Outreach and community education

Why study Outreach and community education?

Our Outreach and Community Education program is the only course of its kind in Victoria. We will prepare you for a career as a primary as well as a secondary school teacher combining methods in student wellbeing and one of either English, mathematics, science, English as a second language (ESL) or drama. We focus on outreach and community education particularly with 'at risk' students. You will be exposed to up-to-date theory and practice and explore child and adolescent development, communicating through the arts, social work, communities, relationships and gender.

Career opportunities

Graduates may register with the Victorian Institute of Teaching and can work in all states and territories (subject to registration) as primary school teachers, and a secondary teacher with student wellbeing and one of either English, mathematics, science, English as a second language (ESL) or drama as your teaching methods.  Our graduates can pursue teaching roles in primary and secondary schools.  They can also apply for roles working as student wellbeing teachers in disadvantaged schools, and teachers in outreach and community education facilities including drug rehabilitation programs, detention facilities for youth, council outreach programs and centres with programs for disengaged youth. You may also pursue a career in children's services and education leadership in the government and private sectors including the media and service industries.
