I have finally made a decision on studying education. I have a few differnt things I need to find out before I make this decision final and apply.
I'm still undecided as to which specialisation to go with. Whether it be early childhood, primary or special education. Any feedback on those options would be wonderful.
Also I have a question about qualifying to get into the course. I can't find anything about mature age students, just that you need a certain OP/UAI/TER. I never did tertiary courses in college (year 11 and 12 in ACT) so I don't have a uni entrance rating. Does any8ne know if this will affect my chances of being accepted?

I'm looking into this as well, I've decided on Primary teaching.
What state are you in? I don't have an OP so I need to sit the stat test to get a ranking, I'm in qld, not sure if it differs state to state.

Not a teacher, but married to one. Special ed would be the easiest out of the three to find a job in. Primary is overstuffed atm.

Before u commit to a course - check out your chances of employment first. Traditionally special needs would be your best bet

Yeah I'm leaning more towards special ed or early childhood because there are other jobs that can use the skills. There are plenty of child care jobs going all the time here. Combine them with community services and I could even get a position helping children in need.

All are very different OP. have you thought about doing some days volunteering in each setting to help you decide?

I know you can do tertiary prep courses through unis to gain entrance. They can be done either online/distance ed or on campus.
Having a cert. IV or diploma can help you gain entrance as well.
