Upon completion, you will be qualified to teach in two discipline teaching areas:
A major teaching area (Years 7 – 12) and a minor teaching area (Years 7-10). These teaching areas are based on your already completed undergraduate degree with a set number of units completed within that qualification per major and minor teaching area.

The course will provide you with the skills, knowledge and experiences necessary to positively impact student learning in secondary school classrooms across the two teaching areas.  Units are studied online with all practical experiences undertaken in Geraldton.

In addition to building the professional knowledge and skills required to teach, the course is designed to foster your disposition for engaging in, and contributing to, the teaching profession through a commitment to ongoing professional learning.

The course is structured to include work-integrated learning as in-school practicum placements in each term of your study through the four Professional Praxis units.  GUC will source and supervise you on these placements.

The design of this course utilises CQUniversity’s three Term structure, therefore you can complete the Master program in 16 months.

To be eligible for teacher registration, you are required to undertake and pass the National Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Educators (ITE) prior to graduation.
