Bachelor of Education Secondary


CRICOS course code: 096877G
Level of study: Undergraduate

The Bachelor of Education Secondary prepares you to become a secondary school teacher, and teach year 7 to year 12. In this role, you will be responsible for educating and guiding students as they prepare for the real world. If you are a good communicator, love having fun with children and are passionate about sharing a love of learning, then this may be the career for you!
At CDU, you can study a Bachelor of Education Secondary online or on campus, part time or full time (for a majority of specialisations). This makes it easier to fit study into your existing commitments. When you graduate, you’ll be qualified to register as a teacher anywhere in Australia.
The course focuses on the skills and knowledge that you will need to teach in high schools, as outlined by the Australian National Curriculum. It meets both the national and local need for teachers committed to improving educational outcomes for children in year 7 to year 12.
You will learn about:

the school curriculum
contemporary approaches to issues in education, such as inclusivity
child and adolescent development
promoting positive behaviour
improving the teaching-learning relationship in the classroom
Indigenous perspectives
raising awareness of issues surrounding Indigenous education
developing an informed, evidence-based approach to learning and teaching in secondary school settings.

As a secondary teacher, you will specialise in teaching certain subjects. As part of your degree, you will choose two specialisations: a major and a minor. You can choose from a range of options, including:

digital technology
health and physical education
indigenous knowledges
visual arts

The course is a mixture of discipline-specific curriculum and pedagogical studies, general education studies and professional experience.
When you graduate, your levels of personal literacy and numeracy will be broadly equivalent to the top 30% of the Australian population.
Students are encouraged to review the employer eligibility requirements as they can vary state to state.
Professional recognition
This course has been accredited through the Teacher Registration Board of the Northern Territory consistent with the standards established by the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership for the Accreditation of Initial Teacher Education Programs in Australia.
When you graduate, you’ll be eligible to register as a teacher in schools across all Australian State and Territory jurisdictions (subject to meeting other eligibility criteria such as the National Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Registration Requirement, English proficiency and suitability to teach).
