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. It has an in-depth focus on early years education, literacy and mathematics.
The program consists of four full-time semesters over two years, as well as one summer and two winter intensives (250 points in total). 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.
This degree will enable you to apply for registration as an early childhood teacher (birth to five years), and provisional registration as a primary school teacher (five to 12 years) with the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT). This qualifies you to work in children’s services and schools in Australia with children aged birth to 12 years.
