If you recognise the importance of Education in the lives of young people and you're interested in Education Support Work then our teaching degree qualifications would benefit you.

What does Education give a person? Education instills critical thinking, knowledge and the ability to decipher the world around us for yourself. Education is not learning a series of facts, rather is it about cultivating the love of learning and nuturing skills such as problem-solving, reading, lateral thinking and interpersonal skills to apply within different contexts.

We offer three courses, Education, Tertiary and Education Support. Below is an outline of each so you can decide which one would suit you.
