We have designed this degree to give your teaching career a kick start. If you were disappointed in your ATAR or if you do not meet the subject entry requirements to begin a teaching degree, this is the course for you. You can use this 3 year degree in 3 ways:
If you did not meet the entry requirements to commence a teaching degree, you can commence your studies with the Bachelor of Education Studies. At the completion of first year, if you have maintained a good academic standard throughout the year, you may be eligible to apply for a transfer into the second year of a FedUni teaching degree. This means that you may still qualify as a VIT registered teacher within 4 years of study.
Alternatively, you may complete the three years of this degree, and continue into a Master of Teaching in either Secondary, Primary or Early Childhood teaching and qualify as a VIT registered teacher within 4.5 years.
Finally, this is a 3 year generalist degree that can prepare you for work in Learning and Education and allow you to discover more about the education system. This degree will qualify you to work in many roles including as an Education Officer developing programs for a wide range of industries or as an Education Support Officer (Integration Aide) working to support students within a school setting. Or you may be interested in working in education policy as a project officer. The opportunities for graduates are very broad.
