26 JULY 2012

One of Australia’s largest educators of primary and secondary school teachers, CSU is updating its undergraduate teacher education courses to better reflect the needs of modern school systems, schools and pupils.

Dr Sally KnipeOne of Australia’s largest educators of primary and secondary school teachers, Charles Sturt University (CSU) is updating its undergraduate teacher education courses to better reflect the needs of modern school systems, schools and pupils.
 
From 2014, all candidates interested in teaching primary education will have a choice to study either a Bachelor of Education (Kindergarten to Year 12) or a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood & Primary). In either case, graduates will be accredited to teach across two sectors. The courses will be offered in Albury-Wodonga, Bathurst, Dubbo and Wagga Wagga.  
 
“Both qualifications provide graduates with greater employment options and opportunities, and allow them to specialise in a discipline,” said Dr Sally Knipe from CSU’s Faculty of Education.
 
“Graduates will gain a better understanding of the education continuum while their degree addresses the changing nature of employment and provides more flexible pathways for people entering the teaching profession,” Dr Knipe said.
 
“Our graduates will be more flexible, especially for employers in rural communities.”
 
The new degrees will replace the existing Primary Education program offered by CSU in Bathurst and Wagga Wagga, which will have its final intake of on campus students in February 2013.
