Professional recognition

A Bachelor of Education (Secondary) provides you with the professional knowledge, skills and engagement outlined in the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (Graduate Career stage). As a graduate you will be eligible to apply for provisional registration administered in Queensland by the Queensland College of Teachers (QCT).

Pre-service teachers are expected to undertake and meet the benchmark in the Personal Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Educators (ITE). These tests are part of the ITE requirements from January 2018. Students enrolled in an ITE course in 2017 will be undertaking the tests upon completion of their study and must successfully meet the benchmarks as part of their teaching registration process.
