Course Description

The Graduate Diploma in Education (Secondary) is a one-year full-time initial teaching qualification for graduates who hold a Bachelor’s degree in a non-Education field relevant to teaching. This course provides you with professional preparation for teaching in secondary schools and for a wide range of other careers with an education focus.

To be eligible for this course, your undergraduate degree must be relevant to one of the following learning areas in secondary schools: English, Drama, Humanities and Social Sciences, Science, Mathematics, Languages Other Than English (LOTE) or English as a Second Language (ESL).

On completion of this course you will be eligible to be employed in government and non-government schools and other education related occupations throughout the world. Students should note, however, that some Australian states require a minimum of two years professional pre-service education.
