Program description

This degree is designed to meet the Australian Government's requirements for Early Childhood Education and to qualify graduates as four-year trained Early Childhood Teachers*.

*Please note: The Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Teaching) is not recognised in NSW to teach in primary schools. This course is accredited with the Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) as an approved early childhood teacher qualification. Prospective students from states other than NSW should seek advice from their state and territory accrediting bodies as to requirements for registration as an Early Childhood Teacher in that state or territory.

UNE's Early Childhood staff are an outstanding team whose teaching is informed by their research, consultancy, professional involvement and diverse backgrounds. They are involved in a wide range of projects and are actively involved in local, national and international professional and research communities. They also ensure you are treated as a 'person', not just a number, by supporting you and challenging you to achieve your personal best.

The career opportunities for early childhood graduates are increasing every year, especially in regional, rural and remote areas of Australia. We know that lots of people who want to study are also working full-time, which is why UNE offers this degree by distance education - giving students the flexibility to balance study with work, family and other commitments.

The course includes mandatory professional experience (practicum) of 30 to 60 days with 5 or 10 days outside your usual workplace (depending on your admission basis).

All Professional Experience must be completed in ACECQA-approved centre-based settings.
