This course is designed to develop generalist primary teachers with particular strengths in literacy, mathematics, science and religious education who meet the requirements to teach in Catholic, independent and government schools.
The course aims to produce teachers who continue to think deeply and critically about the ends and means of education, the social, political and cultural contexts that shape schools, and the ways to continue to grow professionally, and who are committed to working justly and collaboratively to make a positive difference in the lives of their students and to shape a more just and equitable society.
More specifically the course aims to produce graduates who understand that:
Studies in religious education and theology are included in the course to enable graduates to obtain accreditation to teach religious education in Catholic schools. Students not seeking such accreditation may undertake approved alternative units. In Queensland, the course includes a Lutheran strand. Students choosing to complete this strand are accredited to teach in Lutheran primary schools. In addition students wishing to teach in Anglican schools can take alternative units.
Students must complete professional experience units during which time they are required to be available full-time.
Students accepting a place in this course are required to participate in a number of professional placements throughout their program. In order to participate in professional experience it is the responsibility of each student to ensure that they are able to successfully complete the child protection screening required in their state. Students, who are not cleared for working with children and therefore not be able to be placed in a compulsory professional placement, will not be able to complete their course.
