I chose to enrol in the Master of Teaching course because through my undergraduate degree in Sport Science I was able to get experience teaching at schools and found it to be an enjoyable and rewarding career pathway. The thing I’ve enjoyed most about my course is my practicum placements, where I’ve been able to go out and put what I have learnt into action in a classroom. This has provided me with many enjoyable experiences and has further developed my skills as an educational practitioner. Travis Smith
