What will I learn?

The Victorian Government recently announced the funding of a new hybrid accelerated teacher training program, with recruitment starting in November 2020 for Semester 12021.

Our Master of Teaching (Secondary) program offers a number of pathways to suit your individual circumstances and to ensure you become a great teacher.

In addition to the hybrid accelerated pathway program, students may choose to study our Master of Teaching (Secondary) available on-campus at Mt Helen (Ballarat), completed over 1.5 years (accelerated). You also have the opportunity to complete the program part-time over 3 years via online learning (part-time study is not available to international students).

If you are an international student living in regional Victoria, the Master of Teaching (Secondary) is offered over 2 years so that you can meet visa requirements.

Through coursework linked to the Australian Graduate Teaching Standards, student-centred teaching approaches, classroom observations in diverse schools, practitioner inquiry, and by learning in supported Professional Learning Communities, students develop the skills, understandings and dispositions for effective teaching.
