Course Overview

Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Studies)

This course is designed to graduate early childhood educators who are competent, skilled practitioners ready to work in a range of settings with children from birth to age eight, their families and communities.

A key feature of this course is the emphasis given to connecting theory with practice so that graduates will be proficient in developing effective early childhood educational programs that are informed by current research, policy and practice.

Partnerships with over 650 schools and numerous Childrens Services settings allow pre-service teachers to gain experience in diverse settings, including public, private, metropolitan, regional and remote contexts working with children, families and communities.

In addition, a distinguishing feature of this course is that pre-service teachers have the opportunity in the fourth year of their course to specialise and broaden their knowledge and skills in an area of interest. Units are also available in the degree that enables pre-service teachers to complete accreditation requirements to teach in Catholic schools.
