The Master of Teaching (Early Childhood and Primary) prepares graduates for dual registration to teach in early childhood settings and across the primary school years.
The course focuses on early years’ education (birth to 8 years), and on primary school teaching (5 to 12 years). It provides an in-depth understanding of child learning and development, as well as professional practice in early childhood settings so that graduates can operate in multi-disciplinary fields involving care, education and health. The program integrates curriculum studies and professional practice across the primary years, with a specific focus on literacy and numeracy teaching. Teacher candidates consolidate their learning through completion of a research-based capstone project.
The course is completed in 250 credit points of study over two years full-time.
