    Overview

    The Master of Teaching (Early Childhood and Primary) prepares you for dual registration to teach in early childhood education and across all primary years as a generalist teacher.

    You will focus on early childhood development and education from birth to 12 years and be prepared to teach across the curriculum, with a specialisation in early years learning and development, literacy, and mathematics.

    Support while you learn

    Our teacher candidates are successful because of the extra support and guidance they get when leading a class for the first time.

    You will receive ongoing support – unlike any other university – both on campus and while on placement. As you learn, you will be supported by a Mentor Teacher and a Clinical Teaching Specialist.
