Bachelor of Education (Secondary)
Designed for students wishing to become secondary teachers of English, Social Sciences, Mathematics, Health & Physical Education, Physical Science, Biological Science, Design & Technology, Music, Drama, Visual Arts and Home Economics.
Students undertake core education units concurrently with units in their preferred areas of specialisation across the four years of the course, graduating with the flexibility to take up employment in both private and government secondary schools.
Central to the success of this course are the numerous opportunities that exist for students to make the connection between theory and practice through professional practice experiences. Partnerships between ECU and a diverse range of secondary schools allow students to gain the experience they need to become successful and confident teachers.
Another key feature is an emphasis on the use of Information Technology (IT) in learning and teaching. As well as gaining the professional knowledge needed to successfully incorporate IT into learning programs, teaching students develop their own IT skills, ensuring graduates are professionally prepared for teaching and have the confidence to promote student learning in new and innovative ways.
Students are required to complete practicum placement(s) as part of this course.
