In line with new national initiatives in teacher education, UC leads the way with our portfolio of new courses designed to cover all stages of teacher development with focused degree courses in Early Childhood, Primary and Secondary Teaching, and combines these with units for key learning areas and course patterns for specific subjects such as Science Technology Education and Mathematics (STEM), English, SOSE, Health & PE, Creative & Performing Arts, Industrial/Design and Technology, and LOTE.
All University of Canberra teaching courses are registered by the ACT Teachers Quality Institute and are recognised as teaching qualifications throughout Australia. They combine teaching theory and an invaluable practical component. Learn more about our Teacher Education Professional Experience program.
