Do you love young people and get a thrill when you see the lights go on in their hearts and minds? Do you connect with the youth in your church? Are you excited about working with young people reaching for their dreams? Are you keen to equip your own future with our professional qualification to teach in Independent or Public Secondary Schools?

This program is for graduates who sense a calling to secondary school teaching and have an appropriate undergraduate degree from a recognised institution. We take students at pre-service level and current teachers seeking to upgrade their qualifications. Our Master of Teaching (Secondary) is a new program for us but why not hear and read what some of our students are saying about our current program?

We are passionate about tailoring our learning and teaching to students' individual needs, in small classes where each student is known and mentored by their subject's lecturer. Students are never a number!

Our signature delivery style is blended learning, where students come on campus for their one week's face-to-face seminar for each subject and complete the remainder of their study online. However, all of our subjects can now be studied fully online, with the exception of the professional experience placements which require 60 days in schools.
