The Master of Teaching (Primary) prepares graduates to teach across all primary years as a qualified generalist teacher, with specialised knowledge in one learning area.
The course integrates curriculum studies and professional practice across the primary years (children aged five to 12 years). Graduates will be prepared to teach with innovative insights into curriculum and subject areas, as well as applying and building on knowledge from specialised pathways in a capstone project subject.
Students receive ongoing support throughout their studies and while on placement to ensure they graduate confident and ready for a career in teaching. Melbourne Graduate School of Education's Clinical Model of Initial Teacher Education integrates theory and practice, ensuring teachers develop the professional skills to assess, identify and support students’ individual learning needs, and to work with learners of all abilities.
The course promotes a greater understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ways of knowing and being. There is a focus on wellbeing for both the student and the teacher, along with prioritising sustainable practices. The course will prepare graduates to become leaders in the profession and extend their capabilities through work integrated learning that links authentic real world professional experiences with disciplinary theory.
The course may be completed in two years of full time study, or be extended over three years.
