New Course for aspiring teachers
Master of Teaching (Secondary) Internship is The University of Melbourne’s Graduate School of Education (MGSE) newly launched course that would give chance to gain a world-class clinical teaching degree while working part time.
The program will see candidates working at schools over three years in paid internships, all the while taking academic subjects.
Applicants will need to complete a rigorous selection process that includes assessments of their literacy and numeracy ability, their aptitude for teaching, and a careful matching process that connects them with schools that have vacancies, typically in hard-to-staff subject areas such as maths, science, and languages.
This program will help address Australia’s lack of clinically-trained teachers specially in particular regions and subjects.
Candidates accepted into the first cohort of the Master of Teaching (Secondary) Internship will commence their studies in November 2014 and continue through to the start of the new school year in 2015, where they will then start teaching under the mentorship of experienced school staff and with extensive support from the University over the next three years.
