Master of Teaching (Primary)

Edith Cowan University ECU

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Postgraduate
CRICOS: 00279B

Provides a nationally accredited initial teacher education qualification for students who have already obtained a Bachelor degree or an equivalent qualification in areas other than Education. The Master of Teaching (Primary) is designed to produce future teachers ready to enter the Primary education profession. This course is built on the principle that students come to the program with strengths from a diverse range of educational and life experiences. A distinguishing feature of the course is the opportunity to complete a formal specialisation in the Primary Education qualification. This enables students to obtain a deeper and broader level knowledge and understanding in a particular Learning Area at the graduate level, while maintaining your generalist knowledge. The range and number of professional practice experiences are a key feature of the course. This ensures students can make the essential connection between theory and practice whilst building both professional and generic skills in real teaching environments. Partnerships between the University and over 1,000 schools and early childhood settings allow pre-service teachers to gain experience in diverse settings including public, metropolitan, rural, regional and remote schools, allowing them to work with children from differing economic, social, ethnic and educational backgrounds. Successful completion of the course presents graduates with the opportunity to gain employment as teachers equipped with the knowledge and skills to make a positive difference to the lives of young people. Final year Pre-Service Teachers can apply for a place in the internship program in a school.
