- Complete the Teacher Capability Assessment Tool (TCAT) prior to applying.

You may be required to provide the following supporting documentation with your application:
- Previous academic transcripts
- Evidence of degree completion (testamur)
- Evidence of English language proficiency
- Evidence of completion of the Teacher Capability Assessment Tool (TCAT).
2. Selection process
Applicants are initially assessed on meeting the minimum course entry requirements, including the requirements for two learning areas and meeting the TCAT standards. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to attend an interview with the Melbourne Graduate School of Education (MGSE) Selection Committee. All applicants must meet the English language requirements prior to the interview process (i.e. complete IELTS etc.). Please note applicants must meet VIT's English language requirements for this course.
Depending on the interview outcome, selected applicants with learning areas that match current teaching vacancies in participating schools will be invited to attend a school-based interview for employment.
Only applicants who are appointed by a participating school to a teaching vacancy will be made an offer of admission into the Master of Teaching (Secondary) Internship.
3. Application outcome
Applicants will be notified of their application outcome by email. Final admission into the course will be dependent on the Victorian Institute of Teaching granting the applicant Permission to Teach status (the University will assist with this process).
