Becoming a Primary School Teacher?

What is a Primary School Teacher?

Primary School teachers are a vital tool in the growth of young children, as they educate them by planning and conducting an educational programme to develop literacy and numeracy skills as well as monitoring the physical, emotional, intellectual and social growth of their students. Primary school teachers are trained to teach students from Kindergarten/Prep to Year 6.


Focusing on the Primary years (from Prep to Year 6), this degree offers you the opportunity to gain the unique knowledge and expertise needed to educate young learners.
