Course Description

The Bachelor of Education (Primary) provides you with the required skills and qualifications to teach primary students to Year 6, and Years 7 to 9 in junior secondary schools. You can choose to study this course both on-campus or by online study.

CQUniversity is one of the only universities in Australia that incorporates unique features into the course, providing you with the opportunity to gain a nationally recognised Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care after your first year, if you complete the optional practical component. This will enable you to work as a qualified early learning professional in childcare centres throughout the remainder of your studies.

In addition to building professional knowledge and skills, you will undertake frequent and meaningful work experience and professional practice in authentic educational settings. This includes 125 days of planned teaching practice in schools and other learning sites.

The structure of the course allows for recognition of prior learning through entry into the second year of the course if you already hold the Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care (CHC50113) qualification.
