Where it will take you
Employment trends indicate that a high employment rate is expected in the teaching service.
Graduates have entered the teaching service with the Department of Education and Training (DET), the independent schools, Catholic and Diocesan systems of schooling. Recognition of the award will also see graduates employed overseas and in other Australian states.
Second teaching method minor pathway
Students can elect to follow a second teaching method sequence or extend their human movement study through applied physical activity subjects. Both pathways constitute five subjects which may require study through distance education.
Minor studies offered in Mathematics, English, Information Technology, Human Society and It's Environment (HSIE) and Science satisfy NSW requirements for a second designated teaching area.
