¿Qué aprenderé?

The four-year Bachelor of Primary Education is a rigorous course which will prepare you to teach national literacy and numeracy at a primary school level, from Kindergarten to Year 6. You’ll develop a sound understanding of the educational theories and teaching skills required in today’s classrooms, largely by regularly observing them in a primary school environment and putting your academic learnings into practice during one of the many teaching placement opportunities you’ll undertake.

The course’s Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) units across years two, three and four are taught on-site in schools, providing you with regular occasions to interact with children of all primary school age ranges. You’ll become proficient in teaching subjects including English, maths, science, health and PE, humanities and social sciences, and technologies, and will graduate confident, motivated and classroom-ready, eager to make an inspirational difference to the lives of children aged 5 to 12.
