The Master of Teaching (Primary) is a two year program (4 subjects per semester full-time).
Below is a sample subject sequence, although this can be varied depending on subject availability, pre-requisite needs and the student's personal circumstances:
**there are four parts to this usually taken over four semesters
The first three semesters focus on the development of the teaching gift; equipping the student to teach across the curriculum and to be able to design learning units to meet the individual needs of all students.
In the final semester, students undertake a research-focused project to inform and improve their practice and also choose one elective subject to develop their own specific interests or skills.

This program is for graduates who sense a calling to primary 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. The majority of our students are in fact career changers. Why not hear and read what some of our students are saying about our 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.

Good teaching cannot be reduced to technique; good teaching comes from the identity and integrity of the teacher (Parker Palmer, 2007).
