This course is designed for people who have a passion for making a difference in the lives of children and inspiring young minds. A graduate of this course is eligible for registration as a primary teacher in government, independent and Catholic schools.

The Bachelor of Education (Primary) combines theory with practice, ensuring students not only learn about the social, political and cultural contexts that shape education in schools, but also gain hands on practical experience in primary school teaching by undertaking professional placements within schools during the course. This course has been designed to provide students with greater choice and flexibility to meet the changing needs and demands of the teaching profession. This degree will give students the unique opportunity to gain greater depth and breadth of knowledge in a specialist area, which includes:

Mathematics, Inclusive Education, Literacy, Humanities and Social Sciences
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education
Religious Education
Studies in religious education and theology are options in this degree to enable graduates to seek accreditation to teach religious education in Catholic and other faith-based primary schools. In Queensland and Victoria, the course includes a Lutheran strand providing graduates with the eligibility to apply for accreditation to teach religious education in Lutheran primary schools. Students wishing to teach religious education in Anglican schools (Queensland only) can take alternative units.

The Bachelor of Education (Primary) is also available by direct entry application to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in Away From Base mode.
