New fast track into teach­ing

The Observer - - NEWS -

WITH the job mar­ket in Glad­stone and Cen­tral Queens­land dif­fi­cult at the mo­ment, a change of ca­reer could be an op­tion.

CQUniver­sity has come up with a way peo­ple might be able to make that change.

En­gi­neers, sports sci­en­tists, bi­ol­o­gists, chemists, ac­coun­tants and lawyers are some of those el­i­gi­ble to com­plete a new range of Mas­ter of Teach­ing cour­ses, to tran­si­tion into class­room roles.

CQUniver­sity is of­fer­ing a fast-tracked Masters – able to be com­pleted in only one-a-half years – with the flex­i­bil­ity of dis­tance ed­u­ca­tion.

“These cour­ses will at­tract those who have just com­pleted a bach­e­lor course in a field other than ed­u­ca­tion and those who have a bach­e­lor de­gree from a field other than ed­u­ca­tion and have been work­ing in their rel­e­vant in­dus­try and now want a ca­reer change into teach­ing,” CQUniver­sity’s Head of Course for Se­condary and Post­grad­u­ate Teacher Ed­u­ca­tion, Dr Rickie Fisher said.

Dr Fisher said the cour­ses had na­tional ac­cred­i­ta­tion which meant they could be done any­where in Aus­tralia.
