Master of Primary Teaching - EDM001

If teaching is your passion, then the Master of Primary Teaching course will prepare you for a long and fulfilling career in education while giving you the skills, qualifications and experience to work across all areas of the primary school curriculum.

This two-year, fully accredited by the ACT Teacher Quality Institute (TQI) program provides foundation knowledge along with work integrated learning opportunities that include: workshops, simulations, microteaching, problem-based learning and case study analysis.

Designed around a central focus of pedagogical content knowledge (PCK), this course delivers a teaching strategy that creates student-specific learning curriculums based on many education principles, social, cultural and intellectual environments and students’ individual needs.

This course also includes an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander component that ensures Indigenous ways of knowing and learning are both considered and appropriately incorporated into the study program.
