This teacher education preparation course provides students with a master's qualification to teach in NSW secondary schools. Students who have both the required undergraduate degree and specialisation subjects can complete the course in two years of full-time study or 1.5 years in accelerated mode. The course offers major studies in English, Mathematics, Science, PDHPE, Mathematics/Science and HSIE (Business Studies/Economics).

The core component provides research-based studies of educational theory and practice as a basis for professional decision-making in the secondary school context; the major component provides teaching methods; and the professional experience component includes both campus-based and field-based experiences, and is available in each of the specialisation areas.

This course is a NSW secondary school teaching preparation course. It is suitable for students about to graduate with a bachelor's degree and for mature-aged graduates who are changing careers and want a teaching qualification. It includes an intensive professional experience program where students spend 60 days in practical experience teaching, and offers extensive, structured and closely supported experiences of secondary school teaching in different settings. The course has the flexibility to enable students who have completed most but not all of the required undergraduate specialisation subjects to undertake the additional required subjects as part of the degree.
