Secondary teaching at UNSW - new requirements
Career Choice: Posted 2-8-15 Deadline - No Deadline
I received this from UNSW: For secondary education entry, the 3 Band 5’s including English is only an assumed knowledge expectation for our dual UG degrees. It will not be a restricted entry requirement. Because we offer only dual degrees, enrolled students will still be able to satisfy the accreditation requirement by satisfactorily completing a full year of discipline area studies. Alternatively, students who do not meet the above criteria can complete a discipline-only UG degree followed by a Master of Teaching (if their academic performance allows for PG entry).
It should be noted that all students (even those with the Band 5s) will now also have to pass the compulsory state-wide LANTITE test in their second year to prove their Literacy and Numeracy competency.
If they are unable to pass that test, they will be asked to transfer out of Education into their discipline degree only (e.g. BArts, BScience etc.)
