The Master of Teaching (Early Childhood and Primary) prepares you for dual registration to teach in early childhood education and across all primary years as a generalist teacher.
Focusing on early childhood development and education from birth to 12 years, you will be prepared to teach across the curriculum, with a specialisation in early years learning and development, literacy and mathematics.
An undergraduate degree from an approved institution.
All applicants must also:
- meet English language requirements, and
- complete the Teacher Capability Assessment Tool (TCAT) prior to applying. TCAT results are assessed as part of your application.
The Master of Teaching (Early Childhood and Primary) has been approved by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA), allowing you to qualify for provisional registration and work in Australian early childhood education and care settings with children aged birth to five years.
Successful completion of the course also enables you to apply for provisional registration as a primary school teacher (five to 12 years) with the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT), which qualifies you to work in schools in Australia with children aged birth to 12 years.
If you intend to teach outside Victoria, we recommend you check registration requirements with the relevant body.
You may also choose to pursue a career in areas like:
- children’s services coordination
- early intervention for children with special needs
- assessment and evaluation
- youth health and wellbeing.
You are being taught by the best to be the best. The responsibility of a teacher in the early years and primary school is an enormous one and the academics are there to craft you into the greatest educator you can be.
