Are you a confident, caring person who loves learning and would like to work with children and teenagers? You could make a great teacher.
With a teaching degree you can inspire the next generation of thinkers, from early childhood to high school. You could be teaching sport to kids in remote communities, directing a school production as a drama teacher, or teaching English internationally.
Where does a degree in teaching take me?
There is a course for every kind of teacher. If you want to develop a child’s creativity early in life or educate them with knowledge that could lead them into a career, you could study a course in:
- Early Childhood and Primary Teaching
- Primary Teaching
- Primary, 1-10 Health and Physical Education
- Secondary Teaching
As the world’s population continues to grow, there is an equally expanding demand for teachers both locally and globally. This means your degree in teaching could take you anywhere.
What experience can I receive as part of my degree?
We have developed a course that will give you the opportunity to pursue your passion and get you classroom-ready. With access to the first virtual classroom in Australia, you can simulate real-life teaching situations as just one way of gaining more than 580 hours of teaching experience throughout your course, giving you a taste of your career before you graduate. Plus, all our courses are recognised by the Teacher Registration Board of WA.
Where can I complete my prac teaching placement?
Depending where you are interested in working, you can find yourself in metropolitan, regional, rural and remote schools across WA. If you choose to go rural, you can gain experience and have the opportunity to work in diverse environments while also participating in a 10-week rural placement (with a government stipend).
If you’re looking for an overseas placement, we have partnerships with schools in Singapore, Thailand and China. Scholarships for international placements are also available, so you could find yourself being rewarded for helping to educate local children while taking in a different culture.
