Bachelor of Teaching (Primary) (Honours)

Note: This program is no longer available to new students, the information below is relevant to currently enrolled, continuing students only.

Bachelor of Teaching (Primary) / Bachelor of Arts

Description

A good teacher can have a profound effect on a young person's outlook on education, their career aspirations and life generally. If you have a real commitment to helping young people get the most out of their education, a passion for learning, rapport with people and a sense of humour, then you will find teaching a truly rewarding professional career where you can make a difference.

The Bachelor of Teaching (Primary)/Bachelor of Arts program at the University of Newcastle aims to develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions necessary for a highly successful career in teaching. Graduates of this program will be able to seek employment as K-6 (Primary) teachers in and beyond the New South Wales (NSW) Government, Catholic, and Independent school sectors. The program aims to develop graduates who are inspirational teachers with the capability to act professionally, ethically and effectively in their Primary school destinations; insightful scholars with the capability to engage in rational enquiry into curriculum, policy and practice; and innovative leaders with the capability to play a constructive role in public discourse on and beyond education.

Courses available at Port Macquarie are highlighted on the Port Macquarie Program Enrolment Checklist (see Further Information for details).

Credit Transfer

If you wish to apply for credit for studies completed at another institution, or if you are changing programs within the University and wish to transfer your credit to the new program, go to http://www.newcastle.edu.au/service/credit-transfer/ and click on 'How to Apply for Credit'.


Compulsory Program Requirements

The programs in the School of Education incorporate both traditional and innovative approaches to professional experience. Students will complete the equivalent of 90 days professional experience in relevant school settings in a four-year Bachelor program. This matches the current Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational standards (BOSTES) requirements for professional experience in four-year undergraduate initial teacher education programs.

NOTE: All teacher education students are required to do one professional experience placement of 20 days at a location outside of the local region (ie. in other parts of NSW or Australia). Students normally do this "out-of-area" placement in the third year of the program.

IMPORTANT: Some professional experience placements occur during university vacation times. Please check the professional experience website for placement dates before you book a holiday.  http://www.newcastle.edu.au/faculty/education-arts/peu/education/

Professional Recognition

Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards NSW

Graduates of an accredited initial teacher education program will be eligible for registration with the Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards, and can pursue careers as teachers or educators in both the NSW Department of Education and Communities, Catholic Education and independent school systems; and in public and private sectors both nationally and internationally.


Academic Requirements for Program Completion

Total Units required

320 units

Program Duration

4 years full time or part time equivalent up to 10 years maximum.

International student visa holders who are studying the program on campus are required to enrol full time as per student visa requirements.

Program Requirements

The program requires the successful completion of 320 units that are normally offered as 40 units per semester for eight semesters. Students are required to successfully complete:

- Core Courses - 230 Units

- A Discipline Depth Study area - 40 Units (Students are expected to successfully complete 40 units of study in ONE Discipline Depth Study area)

- A Directed Course (Sustainable Communities) - 10 Units

- Electives - 40 Units.

A maximum of 120 units at 1000 level may be counted towards your degree. There is no maximum number of units for studies at 2000, 3000 or 4000 level. Therefore it is important to choose your discipline depth study and electives carefully to ensure you enrol in no more than 120 units at 1000 level.

Students may elect to undertake:

- additional study in their first Depth Study Area to complete a Major (in place of their electives).  Students who are considering a Major should consult the rules from the Bachelor of Arts and ensure that course choices are made in accordance with those rules; or

- a second Depth Study area in place of their electives; or

- the Special Education Specialisation in the fourth year of their program in place of their electives (plus a Special Education Internship in place of the Primary Internship).


Transition Arrangements

As programs are regularly reviewed and updated some students may experience changes to their program of study during the course of their enrolment, and which may require transition arrangements. Students affected by changes to the program or experiencing transition problems are advised to check existing arrangements at "Additional information".  Students should consult with the Student Hub or Program Convenor for further information re transition arrangements.

International students intending to seek accreditation to teach should seek clarification of accreditation requirements with their proposed/intended employment authority prior to undertaking the program.

Special Needs

Students with a disability who require reasonable adjustments to undertake their program should contact the Disability Support Service before semester or early in the semester. Some adjustments need up to 4 weeks lead time to organise, so it is imperative that early contact is made. The Disability Support Service and relevant Faculty and School officers will work together to ensure reasonable adjustments are provided in a timely manner.

Please note: All students must fulfil the inherent requirements of the programs and courses they are undertaking. While reasonable adjustments can be made, these adjustments cannot compromise academic integrity. It is the student's responsibility to check all the requirements of courses, and consider the effects of any medical condition or disability on their ability to complete course requirements. Please visit http://www.newcastle.edu.au/service/disability/ for more information.
