CSU's Bachelor of Education (Technology and Applied Studies) brings together a diverse range of subjects. Graduates will be trained as secondary school teachers in the key learning area of Technology and Applied Studies.

  • Why study this course?

    There is a significant demand for teachers qualified in Technology and Applied Studies. CSU’s program is offered as a full-time, four-year blended delivery program, predominantly taught face-to-face on the Wagga Wagga Campus, or as a part-time or full-time program delivered online with residential schools for practical components.

    On completion of this course you will be classed as a teacher of technology with the ability to teach in the key learning area of Design and Technology and another selected from: Agricultural Technology; Food Technology, Industrial Technology and Information Technology. Students undertaking the Industrial Technology or Food Technology strand can also add an additional teaching area of either Graphics and Multimedia Technology or Textiles Technology.

  • Career opportunities
    Careers in the field of teaching are diverse and can lead to teaching positions nationally and internationally. Secondary school teachers are employed across several industries including education and training, public administration and safety, health care and social assistance among others. There are a range of career opportunities that exist in government and non-government schools.
  • Professional recognition

    This course is accredited by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) until 31 December 2019 for national accreditation recognised by the Australian Institute of Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL).

  • Workplace learning

    The first professional experience component of this course involves a 20-day professional experience program where students engage with issues of teaching and learning, behaviour management, planning and assessment, while working closely with a peer.

    There are then two additional 30-day blocks of workplace learning in the course, totalling 80 days of professional experience placements.

    In undertaking the professional experience placements, students need to be mindful of relevant protocols that are explained on the Faculty of Arts and Education Professional Experience website. Students should not make arrangements for placements prior to discussions with staff in the Professional Experience Office.

    Please note that the following subjects have a Workplace Learning component:

    EPT123 Implementing Professional Knowledge in TAS Classrooms
    EPT329 Working Within The Community
    EPT436 Transition to the Teaching Profession

    Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education Students
    From 1 July 2016, all students must pass the Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education Students (LANTITE) before being able to register with their state-based teacher institute or equivalent body. From January 2017, all students will need to pass the test before undertaking their final professional experience placement. This computer-based test consists of both multiple choice and short answer questions and is designed to assess personal literacy and numeracy capabilities. The purpose of the test is to demonstrate to future employers that early career teachers have high levels of literacy and numeracy. CSU has a range of support options specifically for initial teacher education students preparing for the Test. More information about the test is available at teacheredtest.acer.edu.au

    Working with Children Check

    All teacher education students in Australia must comply with the working with children legislation requirements of the state / country of where their placement is occurring. Students will be required to provide evidence to the Faculty of Arts and Education’s Professional Experience Unit of a Working with Children Check (WWCC) clearance letter prior to undertaking any placement in a school or early childhood service. The checks are intended to identify people who have convictions for such things as violence or sexual offences and who may put clients'/children’s personal safety or health at risk. Traffic violations and other minor offences are not of interest.

    Prospective students should be aware that not passing a Working with Children Check will make it difficult for them to complete a teacher education course satisfactorily because of the unavailability of suitable school or preschool professional experience placements.

    The Working with Children Check expires every five years. You will be required to ensure it remains current and valid to the end of the final placement in the course. Please note that a WWCC can take an extended period of time, so it is recommended that you commence the process early to prevent timing problems. The Australian Institute of Family Studies provides useful information and links relevant to the Australian states and territories. Information on the current Working with Children Check must be uploaded to the student’s information site on InPlace.


    Anaphylaxis Training for all Initial Teacher Education Students

    The NSW Education Standards Authority (ESA), previously the NSW Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES), now requires that all initial teacher education students have training in anaphylaxis. In order to meet this requirement, ALL students must complete the training module found at http://etraining.allergy.org.au. The online module takes approximately one hour to complete.

    On successful completion of the online module, participants will receive a certificate of completion. A copy of this certificate must be attached to your application for your professional experience placement. ESA suggests that students also present a copy of their certificate of completion to principals at the commencement of their professional experience placements. The training must be successfully undertaken every two years and students will need to ensure that their certificate of completion is current.

    The NSW Department of Education advises that students who do not successfully complete this training, as verified by the university, will not be able to undertake professional experience activities in NSW public schools.

     
    Child Protection Awareness Training

    Students must also complete child protection awareness training. Where this is not possible face to face, an online training course is available. This training needs to be renewed annually. See: Child protection awareness training e-learning module

    • SSS010 - Introduction to Chemistry (if considering Food Technology as a major teaching area)
    • SSS011 - Introductory Physics (if considering Industrial Technology as a major teaching area)
    • SSS018 - Foundation Mathematics
    • SSS021 - Transition to University Study
    This School recommends any of the following short, self-paced, online STUDY LINK subjects to students who wish to reinforce knowledge and skills in the area of writing and grammar prior to starting at CSU:

    • SSS021 Transition to University Studies
    • SSS024 Grammar Essentials for Writing at University
    • SSS030 Academic English for Australian Tertiary Studies (Intended primarily for International and English as Second Language Learners)
    • SSS031 Academic Writing Skills (FACE TO FACE WORKSHOP ONLY)
    • SSS034 Essay Writing – Style and Structure
    • SSS035 Critical Thinking
    These subjects are particularly useful for those people who feel that they may have knowledge gaps and need a refresher because they have not studied for some time. STUDY LINK subjects are free for CSU Commonwealth-supported students as soon as they accept their offer of a place; small fees apply for others. They are non-credit bearing subjects.  A Subject Coordinator assists students with any questions. The full subject list and enrolment forms are on the STUDY LINK website.
  • Academic expectations

    For each 8 point subject at CSU, students should normally expect to spend between 140-160 hours engaged in the specified learning and assessment activities (such as attending lectures or residential schools, assigned readings, tutorial assistance, individual or group research/study, forum activity, workplace learning, assignments or examinations). The student workload for some subjects may vary from these norms as a result of approved course design.

    Students will be assessed on the basis of completed assignments, examinations, workplace learning, or other methods as outlined in specific subject outlines.

    Where applicable, students are responsible for travel and accommodation costs involved in workplace learning experiences, or attending residential schools (distance education students).

    Expectations relating to academic, workplace learning, time and cost requirements for specific subjects are provided in the subject abstracts and in course materials.

    Throughout their studies, CSU students have a responsibility to continue to develop skills in English Language, literacy and numeracy as appropriate to their discipline. This ongoing development will enable students to effectively participate in their course and graduate as competent professionals.
