Designed for those interested in the education of adults, the Graduate Diploma in Tertiary and Workplace Education will enhance your skills and knowledge required for teaching adults in a wide variety of formal and informal settings. This formal qualification is particularly relevant and valuable for university lecturers and tutors, vocational education and training (VET) teachers and lecturers from public and private Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) or Higher Education Institutions, nurse educators, adult literacy teachers, community adult educators, human resources and industrial training consultants, professional development personnel and consultants, and curriculum and resource developers working in adult learning contexts. This course is also ideal for those interested in transitioning into education from different disciplines with the goal of progressing toward a higher degree by research. Throughout this course you will develop a solid grounding in the concepts, theories and practice of adult education, and you will build on your own specific areas of interest through varied elective choice. If you have a Bachelor (undergraduate) degree, but it is not in Education, you can do the Graduate Diploma of Tertiary and Workplace Education as a pathway into the Masters of Education (coursework). This course provides development for the professional role of a lecturer, adult educator, facilitator, professional development facilitator, instructor or professional trainer.
