Charles Darwin University to offer a new program for boosting NT teacher numbers
The Bachelor of Education (Graduate Entry) is a new teacher education course that aligns with the national standard for teacher qualification. The two-year course offers specialised professional knowledge and skills in teacher education for those who have a non-education Bachelor degree.
This program will provide more opportunities to prepare graduates and address current and predicted teacher shortages in the Northern Territory specially in Asian Language, mathematics, science and information technology.
The nationally accredited course is designed to prepare graduates and assist those with Bachelor level qualifications to look to a career in teaching and will be available to all qualified university graduates from Semester I 2015.
Using the summer semester option, students complete the course in one and a half years. The course is also available online and has options for part-time study.
The program incorporates the new Australian curriculum and has curriculum methodology subjects in English, mathematics, language, music, economic, visual arts, information technology, science, and Indigenous and Torres Strait Islanders
