Secondary Education

Are you enthusiastic about passing on your expert knowledge? Do you enjoy working with adolescents? As a secondary school teacher you will have the power to make a difference in the lives of young people in years 7 to 12.

USQ Secondary Education programs will prepare you to teach in two subject areas. You’ll study specific discipline courses in your two chosen teaching areas in your Education studies.

  • Enhance your employability and job readiness with professional activities and industry networking opportunities.
  • If you already have a Bachelor degree in an area other than Education, you can draw upon your existing knowledge to become a teacher in just two short years.

Queensland College of Teachers compiled a report called Why choose teaching? A Matter of Choice: Evidence from the Field to help you understand why and for who teaching may be suited.

Career opportunities

After graduating you will be eligible to apply for teacher registration through the Queensland College of Teachers and will be able to teach Years 7 to 12 in secondary schools in Queensland, elsewhere in Australia and potentially overseas.
