    What will I study?

    Overview

    During the Master of Teaching (Early Childhood) course, you will engage with your experiences and grow your abilities to teach across the curriculum from birth through to eight years of age. This includes creating curriculum that supports building relationships with children, families, and communities and practising critical reflection.

    As a Master of Teaching (Early Childhood) graduate you may register with the Victoria Institute of Teaching (VIT) to teach in early childhood settings with children aged birth to five years of age. The Master of Teaching will help you develop your interventionist educational skills through the Evidence-Based Teaching framework. You'll develop the professional skills to assess, diagnose and support the individual learning needs of all students, and work with learners of all abilities.
