Primary Education Course

To learn is one thing and to pass on your education to others is another, both being two very different sides of the same coin. The latter needs professional skills, degree and expertise. Managing classes and guiding through a curriculum requires a lot of competence.

A degree in Primary Education is a combination of educational theory balanced out with classroom and hands on learning at primary set ups across schools. A designated number of hours of supervised teaching are meant to be completed as a part of your coursework.

Graduates in Primary Education most typically move into teaching jobs. In order to teach at primary schools which is from grades 1-6 in Australia you need to be a registered teacher. A full-fledged degree course in Bachelors in Primary Education is for a duration of four years. A professional degree is a must to teach which also includes supervised classroom experience to be job ready.
