Master of Teaching Residency Program

Monash Master of Teaching in Secondary Education – Residency Program

Work-while-you-learn opportunity for aspiring secondary school teachers

Through the Monash Master of Teaching in Secondary Education Residency Program, we are working to match a select number of Master of Teaching students with eligible schools. The program allows pre-service teachers to work within a school community to complete their initial teacher education qualification.

What is the residency program? This opportunity is for students commencing our Master of Teaching in Secondary Education program in 2023. The coursework component of the Master of Teaching course will be offered through a combination of online, intensive and face-to-face learning. You will also complete a minimum of 60 days of professional experience at the same host school.

The program will start in January with the completion of a unit towards your Master of Teaching in Secondary Education course. The duration of the residency program is 1.5 years full-time (there is no part-time option available). You can view the residency program structure on the Master of Teaching in Secondary Education course map.

Pre-service teachers will commence in schools in January 2023.

Do I get paid?

As a part of this program, you will be eligible for payment for your work as an Education Support Officer. This is provided by your host school based on salary scales set by the Victorian Department of Education and Training (this won’t affect your Commonwealth Supported Place).

How many places are available?

In 2023, no more than 16 offers of places will be made. The program is only available to domestic students.

How do I apply?

To be considered for this program, you must submit a Round 1 application for either D60016 Master of Teaching in Secondary Education (2 years) or D60017 Master of Teaching in Secondary Education Accelerated (1.5 years). Applications open on 5 August, 2022 and close on 23 September, 2022. Applications received after this time will not be considered. You must also sit the Casper test by 16 September, 2022 to be eligible. If you meet the admissions requirements for the Master of Teaching in Secondary Education, you will be issued an offer letter in mid-October.

Once you have received an offer, you’ll have an opportunity to express interest in the Residency Program. Selection into the Residency Program is competitive and will involve an interview with the host school. Successful applicants will be notified following the interview process and transferred into the D60018 Master of Teaching in Secondary Education Residency Program. The duration of the Residency Program will be 1.5 years full-time.

If you are not successful in securing a place in the Residency Program, you will remain in either D60016 Master of Teaching in Secondary Education (2 years) or the D60017 Master of Teaching in Secondary Education Accelerated (1.5 years).
