It takes a big heart to teach little minds, because primary teaching is about much more than learning outcomes. As a primary teacher you’ll share in laughter, mop up tears, tie shoelaces, celebrate success and show how to learn from mistakes. You’ll ignite imaginations, encourage curiosity and provide the tools for academic achievement, but you’ll also play a critical role in imparting life lessons – how to be a kind, respectful and successful person, not only in the classroom, but in the schoolyard, at home and in the world.

One of the best things about studying a Master of Teaching (Primary) with Excelsia College is that it’s hands-on from the word “go.” In any given semester you’ll study a mix of foundation units, like cultural perspectives or psychology for teachers, along with curriculum studies for example literacy, creative arts and personal development, health and physical education.


The population of secondary students is set to increase dramatically over a 10-year period starting in 2018 (ACER). This means there will be more available positions for those with the necessary qualifications to teach. At Excelsia College, you can prepare to meet the demand for new teachers in as few as 18 months.
