The Bachelor of Technology/Bachelor Education (Secondary) prepares students as secondary school teachers in the Technological and Applied Studies (TAS) key learning area. Students complete three technology teaching subjects. This online course is supported by live and recorded online learning sessions, and on-campus workshops for some units. The course has a focus on creativity and innovation and a strong underpinning in social, cultural and environmental sustainability. This course is closely integrated with vocational education courses. Some specialisations incorporate specified certificates and/or competencies from TAFE or other recognised VET providers. Students who already hold the appropriate TAFE or other recognised VET provider qualifications will receive advanced standing. Entry into our teaching degrees is based on an indicative ATAR of 70 or OP of 13. Additionally, applicants for initial teaching courses must submit a 1,000-word personal statement outlining their non-academic capabilities. See education non-academic requirements for further information. These entry requirements will ensure that our courses produce teachers with high levels of academic capability, literacy and numeracy skills and the personal characteristics required by contemporary teachers. This education degree is combined with a Bachelor of Technology to ensure a comprehensive foundation for our education students.
