Faculty of Education

The Education faculty offers new and redeveloped courses specialising in Early Childhood, Primary and Secondary, in line with new national requirements for teacher registration. We work closely with our professional and industry partners to ensure that all of our degree programs combine the best of practice, new knowledge, and innovative teaching and learning. All initial teacher education courses have been accredited by the ACT Teacher Quality Institute and are recognised as such across Australia. Welcome from the Dean, Faculty of Education.
