Graduate Certificate in Teaching

Update Your Secondary Teacher Qualifications

The UNSW Graduate Certificate of Teaching is designed for qualified practising secondary teachers who want to update and/or add an additional teaching area to their formal preservice teacher qualifications.

To complete a graduate teaching certificate, applicants must have relevant studies in the teaching specialisation in which they wish to enrol and meet the entry criteria. You must also be teaching at a school that will allow you to undertake Advanced Professional Practice in that specialisation as we do not find suitable Schools for this placement.

As this postgraduate teaching program is designed for working teachers, it is usually undertaken part-time.

Recognised Teaching Qualifications

The Graduate Certificate in Teaching is recognised as an additional teaching qualification in both government and non-government schools in New South Wales and in all other states in Australia.

Students gain accreditation with NESA and are prepared for employment with the Department of Education and Training, independent schools and other relevant organisations.
