I would say Early Childhood Education. You aren't limited to Primary Schools, you can also work in Kindergartens and Child Care Centres. There is a surplus of primary school teachers in QLD, jobs can be hard to get, and permanent contracts almost impossible at the moment. Probably because when I finished high school (15 years ago) there was a shortage and it was highly encouraged to get a teaching degree.

I teach Early Childhood and love it!!! Means I can teach the lower grades (prep to three) which I LOVE (especially Year One) but also have the opportunity to work in kindergarten etc. Ask yourself -
Where would you prefer to work (school, child care etc)
What age group you would prefer

Flexibility with employment is a big reason I'm looking at early childhood. There are always jobs popping up for group leaders and kindergarten teachers in my area.

If u live in Vic like me i recommend you DO NOT do primary teaching. There is literally no jobs, i did a masters in primary teaching and like other graduates in my class struggled to get a contract. i did lots of relief teaching which was crap, was going to go back and do early childhood coz there are lots of jobs (less pay yes but more jobs!) but in the end i have changed my field and much happier now as i have more flexibility. studying education was the worst decision, so many graduates and uni's keep accepting students without telling them... hey, so u might not even get a job afterwards!!! Good luck xxx

Yeah, I'm in qld. There are a lot of schools in my area but I'm also aware that a job isn't guaranteed. If I go early education or special needs from the start it betters my chances of getting something. Any wage is better than what I'm on now.

Definitely go with early childhood or special needs.

I'm starting my Bachelor of Early Childhood with online/distance education through University of Southern Queensland. I've worked as a Childcare Assistant in Childcare and there are so many Kindergarden jobs going, as well as Group Leader jobs. The good news is you can be either in Childcare or a school setting. There is a lot of work but it's always productive and it's great having your own classroom. There is a lot of changes in this sector with the Early Years Learning Framework being introduced this year. But overall the job market is amazing across the country, and you really could get a job anywhere.
I'd really recommend this course. I've thought about moving on to study either special education or primary just to have under my belt if the job market changes and it would never hurt to apply.
