  • The Academic Induction Program is offered to all new teaching staff to Federation University to provide key information, highlight available resources and develop networks to support their teaching role.
  • The Graduate Certificate in Education (Tertiary Education) is a formal, postgraduate qualification to enable evidence-based scholarly practice.
