The Bachelor of Primary Education is a specialist program, which specifically prepares its graduates for the rewarding role of being a primary school educator.
This degree prepares you to meet the educational needs of children ages 5-12 years and qualifies you to teach in NSW schools. It is recognised as a teaching qualification nationally and internationally.
You'll learn the important role you will play as a teacher in the community, how children learn, and about a classroom environment where all children can learn. You will also study Educational Psychology and Sociology, Aboriginal Education, Classroom Management, and Information and Communication Technology.
The Bachelor of Primary Education is fully accredited by the NSW Institute of teachers and is nationally recognised.
PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE (PEx)
You will start PEx in the first session of your first year of your degree. It is your change to experience life as a teacher in real school and classroom settings. You will undertake professional experience in local schools throughout the course, and you can apply for 'out-of-area' professional experience (e.g. in rural NSW) and overseas professional experience (e.g. Thailand, China, Fiji).
