This course is accredited by the NSW Edcuation Standards Authority (NESA) formerly the NSW Board of Studies, Teacher Educational Standards (BOSTES)  until 31 December 2019.

There are two six-week blocks of teaching professional experience in this course. The first professional experience placement must be completed before enrolling in the second. In order to meet course and accreditation requirements, you will be expected to undertake professional experience placements in two different and diverse settings.

In undertaking the professional experience placements, you need to be mindful of relevant protocols. You should not make arrangements for placements prior to discussions with staff in the Professional Experience Office. More about protocols on professional experience in the Faculty of Arts and Education.

Please note that the following subjects have a Workplace Learning component:

EPT441 Professional Experience 1
EPT442 Professional Experience 2
Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education Students

From 1 July 2016, all students must pass the Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education Students (LANTITE) before being able to register with their state-based teacher institute or equivalent body. From January 2017, all students will need to pass the test before undertaking their final professional experience placement. This computer-based test consists of both multiple choice and short answer questions and is designed to assess personal literacy and numeracy capabilities. The purpose of the test is to demonstrate to future employers that early career teachers have high levels of literacy and numeracy. CSU has a range of support options specifically for initial teacher education students preparing for the Test. More information about the test is available at teacheredtest.acer.edu.au

Working with Children Check

All teacher education students in Australia must comply with the working with children legislation requirements of the state / country of where their placement is occurring. Students will be required to provide evidence to the Faculty of Arts and Education’s Professional Experience Unit of a Working with Children Check (WWCC) clearance letter prior to undertaking any placement in a school or early childhood service. The checks are intended to identify people who have convictions for such things as violence or sexual offences and who may put clients'/children’s personal safety or health at risk. Traffic violations and other minor offences are not of interest.

Prospective students should be aware that not passing a Working with Children Check will make it difficult for them to complete a teacher education course satisfactorily because of the unavailability of suitable school or preschool professional experience placements.

The Working with Children Check expires every five years. You will be required to ensure it remains current and valid to the end of the final placement in the course. Please note that a WWCC can take an extended period of time, so it is recommended that you commence the process early to prevent timing problems. The Australian Institute of Family Studies provides useful information and links relevant to the Australian states and territories. Information on the current Working with Children Check must be uploaded to the student’s information site on InPlace.


Anaphylaxis Training for all Initial Teacher Education Students

The NSW Education Standards Authority (ESA), previously the NSW Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES), now requires that all initial teacher education students have training in anaphylaxis. In order to meet this requirement, ALL students must complete the training module found at http://etraining.allergy.org.au. The online module takes approximately one hour to complete.

On successful completion of the online module, participants will receive a certificate of completion. A copy of this certificate must be attached to your application for your professional experience placement. ESA suggests that students also present a copy of their certificate of completion to principals at the commencement of their professional experience placements. The training must be successfully undertaken every two years and students will need to ensure that their certificate of completion is current.

The NSW Department of Education advises that students who do not successfully complete this training, as verified by the university, will not be able to undertake professional experience activities in NSW public schools.

Child Protection Awareness Training

Students must also complete child protection awareness training. Where this is not possible face to face, an online training course is available. This training needs to be renewed annually. See: Child protection awareness training e-learning module

Residential schools are a great way to practise what you are learning in a hands-on environment, and to meet your lecturers and classmates.

Some online courses include a residential school, where you will attend a CSU campus during certain sessions throughout your course.

The following subjects may have a residential school component:

From the early stages of your degree, you can apply for a range of international programs through CSU Global. You could take a session or two on exchange at one of CSU’s partner institutions across the world, go on a study tour during the holidays, or complete some of your practical placements in an unique location.

Are you after a unique CSU study experience? By participating in a CSU Global international study program you can gain a new perspective on where your degree can take you, and even complete your degree that little bit faster. CSU Global has many options available to fit with your course, interests and study needs.

Credit for prior learning and credit for current competencies will be granted to eligible applicants.

More about Credit

If you’ve studied before, you may be able to fast-track your postgraduate degree with Recognition for Prior Learning (RPL). If you’ve completed relevant tertiary study, you could be awarded credit for your postgraduate degree. Get in touch to see if you’re eligible for credit based on your previous qualifications or industry experience.

Bachelor of Teaching (Secondary) Graduate Entry

Upon admission students are awarded 64 points of entry level credit in recognition of prior completed relevant undergraduate bachelor degree. Students who do not meet the minimum NESA requirements will receive proportionally less credit - based on the number of additional subjects required to meet accreditation.

This credit is represented on academic transcripts as:

  • EDU42C Entry Level Discipline Credit - 64 subject points (indicating no additional study is required to support their teaching area)

If students require additional discipline subjects (maximum of two) to meet NESA accreditation requirements then the following credit package will apply:

  • EDU40C Entry Level Discipline Credit - 56 credit points (indicating 1 further discipline content subject is required to support teaching area)
  • EDU39C Entry Level Discipline Credit - 48 subject points(indicating 2 further discipline content subjects are required to support teaching area)

Students may be granted up to a maximum of eight  subjects credit from the set of sixteen core Bachelor of Teaching (Secondary) subjects based upon additional graduate entry studies.

In order for a student to gain credit for a professional experience, the applicant must demonstrate to the Director, Professional Experience Unit that the completed task was indeed equivalent to a professional experience, that is, the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) had provided the student with an opportunity to satisfy the requirements of a typical professional experience. Typically, that would require the pre-service teacher to demonstrate that she/he has developed the skills, knowledge and understanding of the role of a teacher through:

- systematic observation of colleague's teaching and professional dialogue about such observations;
- teaching in a classroom in a collaborative role with an experienced colleague;
- the development of structured teaching and learning materials that are systematically evaluated;
- the development of a professional portfolio;
- discussion of personal teacher development with a supervising colleague on a regular basis;
-engagement in professional dialogue with independent (university) personnel;
- formal assessment of teaching competence by a supervising teacher.

Any student who is conditionally employed within a secondary school setting and is successful in gaining Professional Experience Credit then this credit will only apply to EPT441 Professional Experience 1. It is a course requirement that students must complete practicum in two diverse settings, as such, the student must then complete EPT442 Professional Experience 2 professional experience  requirements at a different school settings.

Any student who completed professional experience as part of another incomplete degree may apply to have that practicum recognised as equivalent in the same manner that they would apply for credit for other subjects.

Subjects

For each 8 point subject you are enrolled in, you should expect to spend 10 to 12 hours per week working on assignments and assigned readings, tutorial assistance, individual or group research/study, forum activity, workplace learning, and attending lectures, residential schools, or examinations.

If you are studying four subjects per session, this is equivalent to a full-time job. The workload for some subjects may vary as a result of approved course design.

keyboard_arrow_rightFull subject list

The below information is for new students. Current students should select their subjects by checking the Handbook for the year of their enrolment

To graduate with the Bachelor of Teaching (Secondary), students must complete 192 points (24 subjects) including entry level credit.  All subjects have a value of 8 points.  The basic course structure consists of 16 education subjects made up of 12 core subjects plus 4 restricted electives (at least 2 curriculum method subjects, and 2 further restricted electives).  Those entering the course with less than the maximum credit package must complete an additional 1-2 teaching discipline subjects depending on their background, as explained below.

Upon entry to the course, a standard credit package will be given to each student based on how well the student's undergraduate degree meets the requirements for their intended teaching area, in terms of the NSW Educational Standards Authority (NESA) guidelines.

Students whose background fully meets the requirements are given the maximum standard credit package of 64 points (equivalent to 8 subjects), and simply complete the 16 education subjects (128 points).

Students who do not meet the NESA content/discipline requirements receive proportionally less credit (either 56 points or 48 points) based on the number of additional discipline content subjects required.

Students with the 56-point entry level credit package are required to complete the 16 education subjects (128 points) plus one 8-point discipline content subject to satisfy requirements for their teaching area.

Students with the 48-point entry level credit package are required to complete the 16 education subjects (128 points) plus two 8-point discipline content subjects to satisfy requirements for their teaching area.

This ongoing development will enable you to effectively participate in your course and graduate prepared to enter the workforce.

Minimum Graduation Requirements

To graduate, students must satisfactorily complete 192 credit points (twenty four subjects). Students may obtain credit up to a maximum of 8 subjects based on their previous completion of approved studies in an appropriate undergraduate degree.

International students

Gain an internationally recognised qualification with CSU at one of our vibrant regional campuses, or study online from the comfort of your own home - anywhere in the world!

You can also study accounting, business and information technology courses at a CSU Study Centre in Brisbane, Melbourne or Sydney.

Browse through the tabs below for more information or visit our International website to discover more about an Australian university experience like no other.

Please note: if you choose to study online with CSU, the course study mode will not meet necessary requirements for granting Australian student visas.

There are minimum Academic and English Language requirements for admission to CSU courses. These requirements ensure that our students have the best chance for success. Minimum requirements can vary from country to country, so please take some time to review our entry requirements  before starting your application. If you cannot find the requirements for your country please contact us.

At CSU, we understand that you are making a financial investment in your future and we want to make sure that you receive the best value for money for your education. That’s why our students enjoy more affordable course tuition fees than other Australian universities, while still receiving a high standard of education.

Tuition fees are set for the duration of your course and don’t go up each year.

CSU Alumni receive a discount on fee-paying postgraduate courses – so if you study your bachelor’s degree with us, and decide to continue your studies at CSU, you could save 10 per cent off your postgraduate tuition.

Please note: whether you study on campus or online, textbooks and other items that you may be required to purchase during your study are not included in the tuition fees.

More information on tuition and other fees.

More information on fees for on-campus study in Australia.

Aside from course tuition fees, all students who choose to study on campus incur other fees such as accommodation, Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF), Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) and other living expenses.

If you choose to study online, some subjects may require you to attend compulsory residential schools in Australia. Residential schools are held on campus in Australia for up to five days during certain sessions.

Please check the residential schools tab in the Course highlights section above (or your offer of admission if your application is successful) for more information on which subjects may have a residential school component.

Online courses for international students do not meet the requirement for an Australian Student Visa, therefore you will need to check that you can obtain an appropriate visa for any residential school session. For more information about visas, visit the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection. More information about residential schools can be found on our Future Students Hub.

CSU campuses offer a uniquely Australian living experience. Most of our campuses have accommodation on-site with many of the buildings nestled among gum trees with native wildlife like kangaroos and kookaburras sharing the space. Off-campus accommodation options can also be arranged.

Few universities in Australia can match the range of accommodation available at CSU’s campuses. Campus life offers all the facilities of a small village with community spirit, helping you to meet lots of new friends while living in a safe and secure environment.

Find out more about CSU’s accommodation options.

Whether you choose to study online or on campus, our international support services can make all the difference. From managing visa requirements to study support, and career advice, we’ve got you covered and our friendly staff will help make your university experience one you will never forget.

At CSU, we work with trained international recruitment agents in more than 40 countries to help you find the course and study option that is right for you. Our agents can assist you to apply for study either on campus in Australia or online. Depending on your country of citizenship you may be required to apply to CSU via an agent. Visit our International agents page for more information.
