Our Griffith graduates are building rewarding teaching careers and influencing lives

Griffith’s School of Education and Professional Studies continues to drive the future of education, bringing a wealth of experience and expertise to the structure and delivery of our education degrees. Our School has established itself as one of the leading education institutions in the world, recently ranked 4th in Australia and equal 2nd in Queensland*, and we remain perfectly positioned to prepare the teachers of tomorrow in priority areas like STEAM education, digital coding, literacy, wellbeing and early childhood education.

Our education degrees span all levels of learning, from early childhood, primary and middle school, right through to high school, adult and vocational education. We also offer specialist programs in high-demand areas, including special education and autism studies through our Autism Centre of Excellence.

Our degrees are designed to respond to the changing world we live in and the demands it places on the education industry. Depending on your degree, you'll have the choice to study in person at one of our campuses, online through our Digital campus, or using a combination of both.

Study education at Griffith

A rewarding teaching career starts here.

Primary school teacher and education graduate Natalie Harris inspired her Year 4 students to get involved in science and technology, setting up the Tech Girls Club at Pacific Pines State Primary School. ‘I volunteered to be one of the school’s first iPad teachers and it showed me the possibilities of integrating technology into teaching.’ Natalie encouraged five of her students to enter the Tech Girls Movement Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero (SNTGS) competition, which they subsequently won at a State and national level. In 2018, Natalie won the Queensland College of Teachers (QCT), Excellence in Teaching Award. ‘Winning the QCT award is so special and rewarding. You don’t teach for awards but because you love what you do, and to be recognised by your peers is humbling.’

Develop in-demand expertise

Our graduates are sought after in the independent, Catholic and state education systems in Queensland, as well as internationally. Our degrees prepare you for work by linking theory with practice, and give you the opportunity to develop your teaching skills in interesting and diverse locations.

The Australian Government has identified education and training as one of Australia’s top five growing industries (Department of Jobs and Small Business, 2018) and our degrees are specifically designed to respond to industry demand and changes.

Study among the best

Griffith has over 50 years of teacher preparation experience. Our lecturers are recognised as among the best in Australia, including Dr Kevin Larkin who was named the 2018 Australian University Teacher of the Year by Universities Australia.

Enjoy flexibility and choice

We offer a unique and extensive suite of qualifications and specialisations that will lead you to exciting new opportunities. You can complete a Bachelor of Education in just three and a half years, giving you a head start in the teaching profession. Griffith is the only Queensland university that allows you to choose you major (primary or secondary) from second year.

Benefit from our powerful partnerships

We maintain strong relationships with schools and industry partners, including two school-based teacher education centres of excellence.

Student story

Yasmin Atwani

Bachelor of Education

ACHPER QLD Pre-Service Teacher Award winner for 2020.

'Griffith has an immersive, real-world focus and it also offers opportunities to grow beyond the degree through programs like the Griffith Honours College. I’m leaving Griffith with a degree, but also a network of colleagues and mentors that will continue to shape my identity for years to come.'
