    About Learning Design

    CQUniversity's Learning Design programs were developed for professionals who seek teaching qualifications, but not teacher registration. These programs are most suited to those who are responsible for instructing or training others, and who want to increase their knowledge of educational practices.

    Students are supported by industry-experienced educators - trained to mentor students. These programs are dedicated to the graduation of industry-ready and futures oriented educators.

    The Associate Degree in Learning Design is an undergraduate program that can be completed in 2 years full-time study or equivalent. 
    The introduction of the Diploma and Associate Diploma degree pathways are aimed at enabling students to undertake an alternative approach towards the completion of a bachelors degree. Students with certificate level qualifications and workplace experience will be encouraged to consider entry into a Diploma for the commencement of their studies.

    Career Opportunities

    Australia is an ageing population and it has been forecast that there will be a large skills shortage in the next five years. Education and training have been highlighted as one of the key criteria to assist in this potential skills shortfall. Currently in Queensland there are approximately 1500 training organisations and CQUniversity's Learning Design programs are aimed at up-skilling and providing paraprofessionals for the training sector. The other target market for the Learning Design programs is the TAFE sector. Currently TAFE teachers are required to have a Certificate IV in Workplace Assessment and Training as a minimal qualification to undertake teaching. There are significant professional and financial benefits for teachers to upgrade their skills.

    Graduates are able to work in adult community education and the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector. This includes TAFE, industry and private training providers and post-compulsory schooling or in a human resource development role in the private or public sector. The Associate Degree in Learning Design is beneficial for professionals who are involved in the facilitation of learning such as nurse educators, defence force instructors, ambulance, police, human resource specialists and other VET professionals.

    Program Structure

    The program consists of the 16 courses/96 units of credit.

    Applicants who possess a base trade qualification/paraprofessional training/qualification to AQF Level 3 and can demonstrate substantial experience that demonstrates the facility of the learning of others may be eligible to obtain advanced standing towards this program.

    Credit is negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
