Program description

The Bachelor of Education (K-6 Teaching) is an initial-teacher education program; it aims to prepare Primary teachers who can teach from Kindergarten to Year 6 and who have a primary teaching specialisation as mandated by the Australian Institute of Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL). The course has been designed to meet the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers. Candidates choose between specialisations in Mathematics, Science and Technology, Language or English. Students with a strong background in or aptitude for Mathematics, Science and Technology, or Language can complete one of these specialisations, which have been approved by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA). Graduates with a NESA-approved primary specialisation receive a code on their teacher registration documentation which may advantage them when seeking a teaching position in a NSW Department of Education school. All other students complete a more general program with a National specialisation in English.

The course is structured to provide in the first year eight discipline units across the Primary Key Learning Areas, to ensure a spread of content background; successful completion of this first year also gives all students, irrespective of their educational backgrounds, the opportunity to demonstrate they meet the Government's academic standards for studying teaching.

From 2018 initial teacher education students must satisfy the School of their suitability for teaching through the satisfactory completion of a non-academic capability assessment.

This course is accredited with the New South Wales Education Standards Authority (NESA).
