The Master of Teaching (Secondary) Internship is an employment-based stream of the Master of Teaching (Secondary). The course allows both recent graduates and experienced career-change professionals who have both the strong discipline knowledge and personal skills needed for a career in teaching to enter the profession in a highly structured and supported way. Interns are employed in schools as para-professionals with teaching responsibilities and have Permission to Teach from the Victorian Institute of Teaching. The qualification prepares interns to teach across the secondary years with specialist knowledge in two curriculum areas.

The course is structured around five campus-based Study Intensives supplemented by academic study conducted across the year online. The five intensives are held as follows:

  • Study Intensive 1: Six weeks (Year 1, November to January)
  • Study Intensive 2: One week (Year 1, July)
  • Study Intensive 3: One week (Year 2, January)
  • Study Intensive 4: One week (Year 2, July)
  • Study Intensive 5: One week (Year 3, January/February).
