There are a wide range of qualifications available that can lead you towards eligibility for teacher registration. These programs will give you the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to start your career. These programs are often referred to as preservice or initial teacher education (ITE) programs.
ITE programs include:
- four-year undergraduate degrees, for example a Bachelor of Education.
- dual or combined degree programs, where two degrees including an education degree, are completed at the same time, for example a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Education.
- postgraduate degrees, for example a Master of Teaching, or Master of Education for people who have already completed an academic degree in a non-education area such as a Bachelor of Science.
