Career Opportunity

Career Opportunity

As a graduate, you will be eligible to apply for registration with the Queensland College of Teachers. The Early Childhood Major is recognised by the Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority.

You will be prepared for a career as a teacher in the public or private sector which can lead to senior positions such as a head of department or principal.

An education qualification is also a good general qualification for many areas of work. Rather than teaching in schools, you could choose to follow a different pathway, and you may find work in: training settings in industry and government, outdoor education, adult literacy, libraries, educational research, education policy, or consultancy.

Griffith University has the highest education graduate success rates in Australia. Our graduates are in demand and find employment in the independent, Catholic and state education systems in Queensland as well as overseas.

Students wishing to seek teacher registration in another state should seek advice from that state's appropriate professional body.
