The Bachelor of Education Early Childhood Teaching is a new and innovative dual sector course that provides graduates with eligibility to seek registration as an early childhood teacher and as a primary school teacher. Students explore issues, concepts and practices which are common and specific to both early childhood education (including prior to school settings) and primary school education.
Criminal History Check: Students must have cleared a Police Check and/or Working With Children Check before they can undertake practice teaching. Students whose Police Check and/or Working With Children Check are not cleared by the education sectors will not be able to undertake practice teaching and will not therefore be able to complete the requirements of the course.
