The teacher education programs offered by Curtin through OUA are fully nationally-accredited. This ensures that you will be able to register as a teacher with your particular state or territory’s registering body.
Part of the accreditation process involves demonstrating that the criteria of teacher competence as set down by the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) are met by all graduates. These are known as the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
You can find out more about these on the AITSL website.
You will see that there is a particular set of standards and criteria statements for graduate teachers, and that expectations change as teachers become more experienced.
Our course assessments, tasks and activities are designed with these standards very much in mind.
