Welcome from the Head of School

Robert Parkes

Head of School / Associate Professor

Our School is committed to being an enabler of student success. We believe in the power of education to transform lives.

We are proud members of a University committed to equity and excellence. Our School helps prospective students from all backgrounds and walks of life to realise their dream of becoming inspiring educators and innovative leaders in their chosen field of early childhood, primary, secondary, community or higher education.

As a profession that requires strong interpersonal skills, disciplinary knowledge and interdisciplinary perspectives, clever planning, and careful evaluation, our graduates take the skills and insights they have gained from their programs into diverse careers within and beyond the education sector.

We invite you to join us, and look forward to supporting you on your academic and professional journey.
