We are thrilled to announce that in the last six months we have expanded our offering in the area of education to students with the introduction of three new online programs.

  • Master of Teaching (Primary Education) - Curtin University
  • Master of Teaching (Secondary Education) - Curtin University
  • Master of Education - Curtin University

It's an exciting time, as we continue to deepen our relationship with the prestigious Curtin University to offer a range of new programs for students to consider.

The introduction of three new online masters programs in education is a reflection of the strong growth in appetite for high quality postgraduate level programs in teaching, as more people opt for a career in a rewarding field.

For those looking to gain a masters degree in teaching, these programs offer flexible learning, enabling students to work towards attaining a teaching qualification in a way that suits each individual's unique needs.

Employers are increasingly seeking highly qualified teachers with up-to-date expertise across current pedagogical practices that can bring a deeper level of skills to schools. The Master of Education is ideal for current educators looking to enhance their skillset and take their career to the next level.

Here's a quick snapshot of what these new programs are about:
