If you want to inspire and give back to your community, teaching is a clever career choice.
La Trobe’s Master of Teaching is ideal for teachers wanting to advance their careers or professionals wanting to make a career change. Choose to pursue either primary or secondary teaching, and benefit from courses that have recently been updated in line with national standards.
We have recently revised and refreshed all our programs to ensure that they follow the national curriculum…if you come to La Trobe, our programs will make you classroom-ready,’ says Professor Lynn Bosetti, Head of La Trobe’s School of Education.
The Master of Teaching (Primary) focuses on diagnostic learning, special needs, pedagogical expertise and relationship skill building – areas that are in high demand within the education sector.
If you pursue the Master of Teaching (Secondary), you’ll specialise in one double or two single method-teaching areas – choose from drama, mathematics, psychology, English, visual arts and more.
You’ll be prepared for careers in schools, as well as non-traditional learning environments such as government bodies and private organisations.
Master of Teaching graduate Dwayne Sim says that he has found his teaching career incredibly rewarding.
‘Every time [students] learn something, a little spark goes off…that in itself is well and truly worth seeing,’ he says.
