Master of Teaching in Secondary Education

This teacher education preparation course provides students with a master's qualification to teach in NSW secondary schools. Students who have both the required undergraduate degree and specialisation subjects can complete the course in two years. The course offers major studies in English, Mathematics, Science, PDHPE (available to C10300 Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science pathway students until the 2021 intake only), HSIE (Business Studies/Economics), English/HSIE, English/EAL/D, Science/Mathematics, HSIE/Mathematics, Science/EAL/D, and Mathematics/EAL/D.

The core component provides research-based studies of educational theory and practice as a basis for professional decision-making in the secondary school context; the major component provides teaching methods; and the professional experience component includes both campus-based and field-based experiences, and is available in each of the specialisation areas.

This course is a NSW secondary school teaching preparation course and adheres to the subject content knowledge prerequisites as stipulated by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA). It is suitable for students about to graduate with a bachelor's degree and for mature-aged graduates who are changing careers and want a teaching qualification. It includes an intensive professional experience program where students spend 60 days in practical experience teaching, and offers extensive, structured and closely supported experiences of secondary school teaching in different settings. The course has the flexibility to enable students who have completed most but not all of the required undergraduate specialisation subjects to undertake the additional required subjects as part of the degree.
