Course Main Navigation

 

Bachelor of Education (Primary)

This is a progressive course dedicated to producing future teachers ready to enter the primary education profession.

A key feature of this course is the range and number of professional practice experiences offered to teaching students which ensure they can make the essential connection between theory and practice, while building both professional and generic employability skills in real teaching environments.

Partnerships between ECU and over 500 schools allow for teaching students to gain experience in diverse settings, including public, private, city or remote schools and working with children from differing economic, social, ethnic and educational circumstances.

Of particular importance within the course is an emphasis on the use of Information Technology (IT) in learning and teaching. Students develop their own IT skills as well as gaining the professional knowledge needed to successfully incorporate IT into learning programs.

In addition, opportunities exist in the fourth year of the course for teaching students to focus on a specialised curriculum area. Units are available in the degree that enable students to complete accreditation requirements to teach in Catholic schools.

Successful completion of the course presents graduates with the expertise required to take up employment as outstanding teachers equipped with the knowledge, skills and experience to make a difference to the lives of young people and take on a classroom of their own.

Students are required to complete practicum placement(s) as part of this course.
