How to Apply
Early childhood educators play a critical role in preparing young children for lifelong learning, personal wellbeing and participation in society. At UWA you'll gain valuable practical experience in partner schools and work with lecturers who integrate theory and practice across various areas. Through placements in centre-based settings, kindergartens and junior primary classes, students experience teaching classes and complete their studies job-ready. Staff are highly regarded for the quality of teaching and experiences offered to students and our graduates are in demand from local, national and international employers.
You can pursue a Master of Teaching (Early Childhood) at UWA after completing a bachelor's degree with a major relevant to one or more learning areas in the early childhood curriculum. Studying teaching at UWA enables you to work at schools in Australia and overseas and in centre-based early childhood education and care settings.
The Master of Teaching (Early Childhood) is accredited by the Teacher Registration Board of Western Australia (TRB), formerly known as the Western Australian College of Teaching, or WACOT. Graduates are eligible to register with TRB and this entitles them to be legally employed as a teacher in a Western Australian school.
