Bachelor of Teaching And Learning/Bachelor of Applied Science (BTLBAS)

About the Course
The education course prepares graduates to be teachers in Early Childhood, Primary, Middle or Secondary schooling. It aims to produce teachers who work effectively within educational contexts that are dynamic and changing. The course meets both national and local needs for teachers of exemplary practice committed to enhancing educational outcomes for all children. . It has particular emphasis on improving teaching-learning relationships in the classroom, raising awareness of issues surrounding Indigenous education and developing an informed, evidence based approach to learning and teaching in diverse education settings Education units are designed for external as well as internal students and the education course welcomes students from around Australia and overseas.


This Applied Science course enables students to tailor their science degree to their own areas of interest and career aspirations. The program offers flexibility and diversity by enabling students to study in different areas of science offered in the School of Environmental and Life Sciences, as well as allowing students to integrate studies from a variety of areas outside of traditional science disciplines into their science degree.


Graduates are equipped to demonstrate and apply an understanding of their chosen areas of science, including concepts, theories and principles to practice in real situations. Students also become effective problem solvers able to think globally, apply logical and critical thinking, and to apply an understanding of scientific and technological factors and to consider issues from various cultural, economic and other societal perspectives.


The Bachelor of Science (Honours) is available for entry to suitable candidates with a Bachelor of Applied Science.


Graduates of this combined degree are awarded both the Bachelor of Teaching and Learning and the Bachelor of Applied Science.


Students must have cleared a Police Check and/or Working with Children check before they can undertake practice teaching. Students whose Police Checks and/or Working with Children check are not cleared by the education sectors will not be able to undertake practice teaching and will not therefore be able to complete the requirements of the course.


Course Structure
This combined degree course will enable graduates to teach at either Primary, Middle or Secondary School level.


The Education course meets both a national and local need for teachers of exemplary practice committed to enhancing educational outcomes for all students. The preservice program in particular has an emphasis on enhancing indigenous education in early childhood, primary and middle school settings. The education course has core education units, professional experience/practicum units, knowledge/discipline units and two Common units. Students can specialise in Early Childhood, Primary, and Middle School teaching.


The education course is practical in nature with students having professional experience in schools / learning sites from the third year of their course. Professional experience blocks require full-time commitment in each year of the course with the final practicum undertaken over a full school term. Students are encouraged to undertake some field/professional experience in remote schools. Students undertaken the Education course in external mode normally complete their professional experience in their home towns.


A typical course pattern will be two years of Applied Science followed by two years of Education and Electives. The Applied Science course consists of Common units, science core, specialist elective and elective units. Students complete either a general science course or specialisations are available in: Cognitive Science (Psychology, Cell Biology, Pharmacology and Behavioural Sciences); Ecology and Ecosystems (Ecology, Biodiversity, and Geographic Information Systems); Science Communication (Communication Studies, Writing and Media Studies) and Spatial Information Technology (Databases and Programming, GIS and Remote Sensing).


Students who complete the Bachelor of Teaching and Learning are eligible for Teacher Registration in the Northern Territory. Students who intend to seek employment outside the Northern Territory following course completion should, before enrolment, have the relevant state teacher registration authority and relevant employment authority (eg. State department of education, or Catholic Education Office) confirm their eligibility and suitability for registration and employment


Graduates of this combined degree program are awarded both the degree of Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Teaching and Learning.
