To teach in a Victorian school, graduates must be registered with Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT).
Students planning to register and work as school teachers or early childhood teachers in Australia or overseas should check registration requirements with local teacher regulatory bodies in case additional requirements apply.
Specialisations in early childhood education are accredited by the Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority(ACECQA). This means that these qualifications will be accepted for early childhood teacher registration in Victoria and most other Australian states and territories, which qualifies you to work as a teacher in licensed preschools and childcare centres in Victoria. If you plan to teach in a preschool or kindergarten setting then you’ll need to register with the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT).
All primary and secondary education specialisations are accredited by the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) using the national accreditation standards. This means that these qualifications will be accepted for school teacher registration in Victoria and all other Australian states and territories.
Anyone can learn – but not everyone can teach. It takes gifted, hard-working people, who are just as passionate about inspiring young people as they are about educating them. All applicants will now need to complete a non-academic selection component when applying for the Master of Teaching. You’ll be required to complete a mandatory online 90-minute computer-based test – Casper.
