Primary school

Teaching is not your average job. As a primary school teacher you are responsible for inspiring, motivating and mentoring children during their formative schooling years.

Our primary education courses prepare you for an exciting and rewarding career. They equip you with innovative and creative teaching practices that allow you to help young people to learn and live successfully in an ever-changing world.

Primary education teachers educate students (Foundation-6) to achieve in the areas of literacy and numeracy and to establish foundations in science, technology, health and physical education, arts and humanities. We also offer options to prepare you to teach languages other than English. Undergraduate programs can include study of languages. Postgraduate programs require applicants seeking to become teachers of languages to demonstrate proficiency in both English and at least one additional language.
