Program focus

This program is designed to enable degree-level graduates to acquire a recognised teacher education qualification. This innovative and flexible program develops knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for success in the work of contemporary educators.

The flexibility of the Graduate Diploma in Learning and Teaching program allows students to balance the competing demands of work, family and study.

There is a professional experience component within this program. Students are able to choose from the following specialisations:

  • Primary (Years Prep - 7)

  • Middle Years of Schooling (Years 5 - 9)

  • Secondary (Years 8 - 12)


Career opportunities

Students who complete the Graduate Diploma in Learning and Teaching program will be well qualified for employment as teachers in schools in Queensland, elsewhere in Australia and in many overseas jurisdictions, as well as in a range of alternative education settings and in the diverse and expanding post-compulsory sector.

All students, domestic and international, must complete a minimum of 30 days of their supervised professional experience in Australian schools

Other career opportunities exist in the many emerging fields where the teaching-related skills of communication and educational management are critical, in conjunction with the appropriate specific discipline knowledge.

There are further career opportunities available in industry, particularly in the roles and functions related to training.
