Notre Dame values its role as a leading contributor to the vocation of teaching. The teaching programs are designed to produce well educated, industry ready graduates who will find suitable and satisfying employment in a wide range of education and care settings.

As well as an extensive practicum experience, students are provided with:

  • Strong supportive and mentoring arrangements
  • The ability to teach in a major and specialisation learning areas
  • The strong integration of theory and practice

  • Professional reflection on practice
  • Exposure to emergent learning technologies

A unique feature of the degree is that a unit of study is completed during the practicum. Specialist staff, in the host setting, teach this unit for the University. This gives students the benefit of the contemporary experience of practising educators and allows students to relate the teaching methodologies examined directly to their observation and teaching practice.

It is possible to study Education (Secondary) as part of a double degree. Combinations include:

  • Bachelor of Education (Secondary)/Bachelor of Arts (5 years)
  • Bachelor of Education (Secondary)/Bachelor of Behavioural Science (5 years)
