Why study the Bachelor of Education (K-12 Teaching) at UNE? The Bachelor of Education (K-12 Teaching) is a unique dual sector teacher education course that offers two career pathways for graduates. It is an undergraduate teacher education qualification that encompasses working in both Primary Schools and Secondary Schools. All candidates complete a NESA or National primary specialisation with a curriculum focus. The following are NESA primary specialisations: a Language; Mathematics; or Science and Technology. Students completing a NESA specialisation will receive a NSW Department of Education code on their teacher registration documentation which may advantage them for future employment in NSW Government schools. All other students will complete a National specialisation in English/Literacy. Being a teacher is a rewarding career for those who enjoy being part of children's growth and learning. The professional understandings and abilities learned in the Bachelor of Education (K-12 Teaching) will be valued by the broader community. Students will have opportunities to develop their skills, knowledge and attitudes to become a successful teacher and a member of one of the largest professions worldwide. This course is accredited with the New South Wales Education Standards Authority (NESA). IMPORTANT ADVICE The NSW Government raised admission requirements for undergraduate teaching courses in 2016. The new requirements are considerably higher than before and specify a minimum of three Band 5 HSC results, including one in English, or bridging units or alternative pathway as approved by NESA. Further information is available via the NESA Teacher Accreditation website. In addition to the above, from 2018 initial teacher education students must satisfy the School of their suitability for teaching through the satisfactory completion of a non-academic capability assessment. UNE offers pathways to teaching for those applicants who do not meet the new admission requirements: Option 1 - You may complete an appropriate number/combination of NESA-approved bridging units or the first year of your undergraduate studies in a non-teacher education course such as the Bachelor of Educational Studies or Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science. You may then apply to transfer, with Advanced Standing (credit) if applicable, to the Bachelor of Education (K-12 Teaching); or Option 2 - You may complete an undergraduate non-teacher education course such as the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Educational Studies. You can then apply for the Master of Teaching (Primary) or the Master of Teaching (Secondary) as a graduate entry student.
