Hi everyone, I'm hoping to draw on all you wise hubbers experiences because I have no idea where to start!.
It's been maaaaaaany years since I was at uni. That was in Victoria and I now live in Brisbane. I'm hoping to start a graduate diploma in teaching next year (undecided whether to do primary or early years) but I'm not at all familiar with the qld tertiary education system or processes. Can anyone please help me out with the following questions:
How do I find out which uni's offer this course?
How can I find out a little about the course outline at each uni (I believe there is a book released each year by QTAC? But not sure where to get it or how comprehensive it is). I believe the grad diploma is becoming a 2 year course but I don't even know how to confirm this.
How do you actually apply for the course? Is it through QTAC?
Does anyone know time frames, ie roughly when do applications need to be submitted and when do you find out whether you were accepted or not?
Also (getting a bit ahead of myself here) but if you are accepted, when do you find out your timetable for classes etc?. I'm wondering about that time frame for daycare reasons- I realise the course will be full time but I'm hoping to get away with daycare for 4 days, however I won't be able to drop the 5th day (if at all) until I know when I have to be on campus however I will have to pay for it from the beginning of jan
And any other information that you think I might need to know!.
Thank you so much for any information anyone can give me. I realise that teaching is probably an unfortunate path to follow, given that there is an oversupply of teachers around, but after completing a career counselling course last year it's become apparent that this is really what I should be doing, so I feel like I have to give it a try!.
