Welcome to the School of Education

Schools are places of change and development for children and young people. Christian teachers make significant impact on the lives of their students showing them something of the love and power of God, as well as helping them understand themselves, develop knowledge and skills and the capacities to live abundant and fruitful lives.

Bachelor of Education – Primary or Secondary

This will qualify graduates to apply for registration as teachers in Australia and overseas, and allow them to teach in government, Christian and independent schools.

You will study in a supportive and intimate environment, learning not only the skills necessary to teach but also engaging with ideas of faith and Spirit. A core of theological units will challenge, broaden and connect you with your educational vocation.

Commonwealth supported places and HECS-HELP available for the Bachelor of Education.

The Bachelors of Education are integrated with each other, and the College's Bachelor of Arts. Students can transfer easily from one course to the other in the first two years of study. This provides great flexibility as we recognise that students' early goals can modify as their studies progress.

Applications are made directly to Eastern College Australia and NOT through Victoria Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC).

Master of Teaching – Primary or Secondary

If you already hold a degree in another discipline, a Master of Teaching will qualify you to become a teacher in primary or secondary schools in Australia and overseas.

A Master of Teaching with Eastern will enable you to teach at Independent, Catholic and government schools and in other educational settings as expert professionals and leaders.

You will be equipped to design and implement curriculum and assessment, understand diverse learners and learning processes, and engage with educational ideas and developments, founded upon a Christian understanding of education.

Master of Education

Our Master of Education course provides an opportunity to maintain the Victorian Institute of Teachers Professional Standards for registered teachers and to equip teachers and school leaders with advanced professional knowledge and skills which are founded upon a Christian understanding of education.

At Eastern we encourage teachers and educational leaders to consider advancing their knowledge and practices to the next level.
