Becoming a Teacher

Is primary school teaching for you?
  • Do you have good communication skills?
  • Do you enjoy music, art, games or just having fun outdoors?
  • Would you like the chance to teach a wide range of interesting subjects?
  • Does the idea of teaching young children aged 4 to 12 inspire you?

If you answered “Yes” to the above questions then the Bachelor of Education DC004 might be for you.
