Overview

CQUniversity’s Bachelor of Education (Primary) is an initial teacher education course usually studied over a period of four years. The course qualifies you for professional registration which is administered in Queensland by the Queensland College of Teachers. You will demonstrate evidence of meeting the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (Graduate career stage) throughout the course of study. On successful completion of the course, you will be eligible for employment in primary school contexts throughout Australia.

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

A key feature of the Bachelor of Education (Primary) at CQUniversity Australia is the embedded VET qualification: The Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care. On successful completion of the 9 first year units and an additional practical component in a childcare setting, you can receive the Diploma as an interim award. The structure of the course also allows for the recognition of prior learning. Applicants who already hold a Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care may be eligible for up to 6 units credit.

Career opportunities

As a graduate of the Bachelor of Education (Primary) you will be qualified to teach in primary schools to Year 6 and Years 7 to 9 in junior secondary school contexts. Like most professions, teaching has specific workforce demands and sometimes oversupply. Before undertaking a program of study, you should check with major employers regarding potential employment prospects.
