Is it your dream to become a teacher? The University of Adelaide provides three exciting pathways to becoming a middle or secondary school teacher.
Australia's only Apple eLearning program
We have partnered with Apple Aust. & NZ Inc. to bring the eLearning program to the Bachelor of Teaching and Master of Teaching degrees. The eLearning Program will guarantee that you graduate with cutting edge skills in learning technologies. You will use iPad to create outstanding learning resources and lesson plans, experience placement in some of the most cutting-edge schools in Australia and also gain internationally-recognised Apple Teacher status. At graduation, you will be prepared to enter schools as an innovative, contemporary teacher.
Gain professional experience
Benefit from classroom placements in each year of our Bachelor program or a total of 70 days in our Masters program.
Designed for aspiring teachers who have completed an undergraduate degree, this two-year degree is offered in accelerated mode (1.5 years) and provides a professional qualification that is accredited by the Teachers’ Registration Board of South Australia.
Align yourself with a leading university
The University of Adelaide is South Australia's number one university for graduate employability* and our degrees build a strong foundation for an outstanding career in teaching.
Head of School of Education,
Professor Faye McCallum
"Teaching programs at the University of Adelaide focus on quality and contemporary learning and teaching. We aim to future-proof the profession – in our degrees there is a unique eLearning program that will help you prepare for online teaching and the digital world. There is also a focus on wellbeing in education - for children/young people, for you as the teacher, and for leaders. Academic staff at the School of Education have teaching experience and are active researchers in lots of important educational areas. Our alumni teach and lead schools locally, nationally and internationally. They are in high demand, as are our graduates who gain employment in all sectors across the globe because of their unique teaching skills and expert discipline knowledge.”
What kind of teacher would you like to be?
"The implementation of the eLearning program and incorporation of Apple devices and technologies throughout the degree holds an exclusiveness about it. It allows students to understand how powerful a tool a tablet can be in the classroom. The creative aspect to let your imagination run free certainly rings true in the tech reliant world we live in today and it’s the need to adapt to this inevitability that will allow the next generation of young teachers coming through to really be, ‘mavericks of change and innovation’
The link between STEM and creating a more innovative world in order to solve the problems our generation face is constantly increasing. To study a double degree with secondary teaching gives me the incentive to achieve the best results to help me empower new generations of young adults to use what they learn inside the classroom in everyday problems affecting the world.
"The Master of Teaching is delivered by experienced and passionate academics who model all the qualities of great teachers. The programme promotes new teaching approaches and empowers pre-service teachers to develop both professionally and personally. Through the programme I have been able to critically explore and further mature my skills and ethos as an educator."
