Bachelor of Education (Primary)
The Bachelor of Education (Primary) prepares graduates as generalist primary teachers in schools from reception to Year Seven.
The Bachelor of Education (Primary) is based at the Magill campus.
Students will be required to undertake a criminal history screening through the Department of Communities and Social Inclusion (DCSI). The clearance will be valid for three years. The criminal history screening must be completed prior to being accepted for a placement and can take up to six to eight weeks to be processed. Strict confidentiality is maintained during the DCSI clearance process. If a student fails to obtain clearance for any reason, the University cannot accept responsibility for obtaining a professional experience placement or any other professional experience activity which is a compulsory part of the program and they cannot graduate with an education degree from the University.
Mandatory Child-Safe Environments Training
All education students enrolled in programs in the School of Education and who are completing any in-school or site (i.e. preschools and childcare settings) observations, activities or professional experience placements, must undertake mandatory training in Responding to Abuse and Neglect prior to the commencement of the activities or placements. In South Australia child protection legislation and policy require all organisations to establish and promote child safe environments. Mandatory reporting of child abuse and neglect training is required of all individuals working with children and young people.
Tuition Fee: AUD $ 24,400 per year
