Secondary teaching

Our programs for secondary teaching assist students to become confident and able to respond and meet the challenges of the new millennium for learning communities.

Our programs are dynamic, challenging and provide a supportive environment for students to explore and thrive in.

Through a range of programs on offer, students can elect to become qualified to teach in middle years (P-10) or can choose to work as specialist teachers (7-12) through a choice of joint degrees majoring in particular teaching disciplines.

For those who have an undergraduate qualification and have decided they would like to become a secondary teacher, our graduate diploma will provide you with the capacity to be a competent, reflective and critically aware educator with a sound basis of skill and understanding to provide for future professional development.
