The Master of Teaching (Primary) is a graduate entry initial teacher education program designed to prepare you to teach as a primary teacher.

The program is designed with current research informing the mapping and sequence of knowledge and practices to develop high-quality, career-ready graduates.

Areas of focus include: curriculum and pedagogy, assessment and reporting, Indigenous knowing in curriculum design, special education and inclusivity, classroom management for positive learning, discipline knowledge as a specialisation, literacy and numeracy, and ICT across the curriculum.

You’ll undertake a total of 60 days’ supervised professional practice in primary or secondary schools. This is embedded in education units to ensure that theory and practice is explored in both University and school contexts.

The program is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to work in complex education settings.
