What is this course about?

The Graduate Certificate in Literacy offers to extend the teaching abilities of students, create opportunites for critical reflection on practice, and enhance the employment prospects of participants through an innovative use of workplace learning, research and in-depth study in the literacy discipline area.

The aim of the Graduate Certificate in Literacy is to offer candidates enrolled in undergraduate teacher education programs, the opportunity to undertake a course of study which has a focus on developing knowledge and helping children develop literacy skills. This course also offers existing teachers, particularly early-career teachers the opportunity to undertake further study to build professional knowledge in the area of literacy education.

Graduates will have:

  • The opportunity to explore the impact of information and communication technology on young peoples' literacy development
  • The opportunity to develop an individual learning plan in an area of specialisation that combines work experience, self-driven study and participation in learning activities

Professional recognition

This course enables additional study to be undertaken in a specific content area, but it is not a retraining program and therefore will not have independent accreditation sought with the NSW Institute of Teachers.
