Teaching and Education Courses

With over 1,000 new graduates each year, Western Sydney University is one of Australia's largest providers of professional teachers.

Our courses are designed so you graduate work-ready – with a strong balance of theory and practical skills, to help you adapt to new challenges and complexities as they arise. The practical experience you will gain in our teaching programs will also give you the confidence to succeed from your first day at school.

As a graduate, you can work as a teacher in an early childhood centre, a government or non-government school, or college relevant to the postgraduate qualification and the majors chosen in the undergraduate degree.

This includes roles as a primary school teacher (K-6), secondary school teacher, an education field officer in a variety of industries, including sport, welfare, community education, and also in training and development facilities in industry.

In 2017 you will find even more teaching pathway courses including arts, business, graphic design, health science and science.
