Bachelor of Education (Primary)




Courses Overview

What will I learn?
A progressive course dedicated to producing future teachers ready to enter the primary education teaching profession. A key feature of this course is the range and number of professional practice experiences offered to pre-service teacher education students, ensuring they can make the essential connection between theory and practice, while building both professional and generic employability skills in real teaching environments.
Partnerships between ECU and over 650 schools allow for pre-service teacher education students to gain experience in diverse settings, including public, private, city, or remote schools, working with children from differing economic, social, ethnic and educational circumstances.
Another distinguishing feature of this course is the opportunity to complete a formal specialisation in your Primary Education qualification. This enables you to obtain a deeper and broader level knowledge and understanding in a particular Learning Area at the graduate level, while maintaining your generalist knowledge. Units are also available in the degree that enable students to complete accreditation requirements to teach in Catholic schools.
Employment opportunities
Successful completion of the course presents graduates with the expertise required to take up employment as outstanding teachers, equipped with the knowledge, skills and experience to make a difference to the lives of young people and teach in a classroom of their own.
