Faculty of Education

The Education faculty offers courses specialising in Early Childhood, Primary, Secondary and Educational Leadership, aligning with national requirements for teacher registration. We work closely with our professional and industry partners to ensure that all of our 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. Our Master and other postgraduate qualifications have been thoughtfully designed with an appreciation of the diverse circumstances of our students, including working education professionals.

Welcome from the Dean, Faculty of Education.
