Bachelors of Business Management / Education (Secondary)

Overview

Guide our future leaders and be qualified to teach business and economics in high schools.

This dual degree prepares pre-service teachers to teach Economics and Business in the senior phase of schooling. You will complete a major in Business Economics and graduate with two teaching areas in Business and Economics.

You will be provided with opportunities to develop the appropriate knowledge and teaching strategies to effectively deal with literacy and numeracy demands and learning opportunities that exist in economics and business.

In the education component of your studies, you'll be immersed in hands-on workshops, school visits and supervised professional experience placements throughout the program. All of this will give you a strong and practical understanding of day-to-day life in a school, so you know what it takes to play an instrumental role in shaping young adults into who they want to become.

Placements and work experience

Compulsory Placement Course

Students must complete 10 days school experience and 90 days supervised practicum. Every effort is made to place students within a reasonable distance of their home base but they can be expected to travel up to 90 minutes due to public transport connections and incur costs associated with travel and possible lost income over this period. Students are generally placed at Ipswich, Brisbane, and southeast Queensland and are encouraged to explore the option of a rural placement. Financial assistance may be available to assist with travel and accommodation costs for rural placements.

Students are required to have a current Blue Card (Working with Children Check) before commencing practicum. Students can apply for a Blue Card through the School of Education and should do so three months before their practicum is due to commence. The Teacher Preparation Programs Handbook provides information about practicum and school experience requirements and is available from School of Education.

Additional application information

Applicants to education programs in Australia must complete non-academic entry criteria - please check QTAC's advice.

The following advice has been provided from the Queensland College of Teachers (QCT):

Transferring students
If a student is admitted as a transfer student into an Initial Teacher Education (ITE) program at a new university and they enrolled in their original ITE primary program prior to the implementation of the non-academic selection tool pre-requisite, they are able transfer without meeting the requirement. If a student is being admitted into an ITE program as a new student, the prerequisite will need to be met.

Students accepted into an ITE program who defer the commencement of their study date post Semester 2 2017
A student who has already accepted a placement in an Initial Teacher Education (ITE) program and has deferred their study for a period no longer than one year will not need to submit documentation to address the requirements of the non-academic selection tool.

Additional application information

As part of the Australian Institute for Teaching and Leadership (AITSL) revised Standards and Procedures (2015), applicants to initial teacher education courses (pre-service teachers) must satisfy both academic and non-academic entry criteria for selection to the course. All applicants will need to complete an online questionnaire to meet the non-academic entry requirement for this program. Once you have submitted your application, you will be directed to the online questionnaire.

All students are required to successfully meet the Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education (LANTITE) standards prior to graduation. For more information on the test, including sample tests and registration information, please visit the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) website.
