All of our Initial Teacher Education (ITE) courses combine teaching theory and an invaluable practical component and are registered by the ACT Teacher Quality Institute. Students seeking registration as a teacher in another jurisdiction should confirm the requirements with the teacher registration organisation in that jurisdiction.
Our TESOL courses offer an excellent balance of practice and theory and equip students with a solid basis in education, linguistics and applied linguistics. Students gain practical knowledge and skills while reviewing the way that beliefs, principles and theories affect teaching. Click here for a comprehensive overview of our TESOL and FLT program.
