Dubbo to reap rewards from teaching expansion

8 JUNE 2001

Teacher education programs at Charles Sturt University's Dubbo campus are set to expand in 2002.

Teacher education programs at Charles Sturt University's Dubbo campus are set to expand in 2002.

Next year the Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood) will begin on the Dubbo Campus, and the Bachelor of Education (Primary) will extend to the third year.

Hand in hand with this expansion is the announcement of CSU’s first joint appointment with the Department of Education and Training (DET). Mr Daryl Healey will lecture for the Faculty of Education at CSU and work as a senior education officer for the department.

Dean of the Faculty of Education, Professor Bob Meyenn said that these developments reflect an increasing demand for teacher education places.

This increased interest has come at a critical time for the profession, Professor Meyenn said.

“The profession is now part of a global labour market and we know there are teacher shortages in the UK, Canada, NZ and in the USA. America alone estimates they will need 2.3 million new teachers before the end of this decade. 

“To have more teachers coming into the system at this time is crucial.”
