Study Mode

Online Education, Distance Learning & External study modes available

What is this course about?

CSU's Bachelor of Education (Technology and Applied Studies) - industry entry program brings together a diverse range of subjects. Graduates will be trained as secondary school teachers eligible to teach in the newly established Trade Training Centres in schools.

The demand for teachers in TAS is significant. Many existing technology teachers have only one area of expertise and, over the next 10 years, major shortages of TAS teachers are predicted across Australia. CSU's Bachelor of Education (Technology and Applied Studies) - Industry Entry program (IEP) pathway will address this need. The program is offered fully by distance education, in both full-time and part-time modes.

On completion of this course you will be classed as a teacher of technology with the ability to teach in the key learning area of Technology and Applied Studies. Dual accreditation for general education and vocational education applies for the Industry Entry course. The Bachelor of Education (Technology and Applied Studies) - Industry Entry program replaces the previously accredited Accelerated Teacher Training Program offered at CSU.

This course includes practical experience through workplace learning.

NOTE: If you are a School leaver and/or do not believe you hold the required industry qualifications for this course then the four-year on campus Bachelor of Education (Technology and Applied Studies) may be the course for you.

Associated costs

As part of the Bachelor of Education (Technology and Applied Studies) students will complete a TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment which will require enrolment with CSU Training to complete this award. Enrolment and certificate issue costs need to be met by each student. For students who hold a current TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment this component of study may be exempted.

Extra costs may be associated for the acquisition of units of competency to gain accreditation and registration to teach VET in schools. These costs will be determined by various Registered Training Organisations (e.g. TAFE NSW) and must be independently paid for and organised by students.

Career opportunities

Where it will take you

Predicted employment trends indicate considerable growth in opportunities in TAS across Australia, particularly due to teacher retirements and the newly established Trade Training Centres in schools.
