Australia’s economic prosperity is linked to developments and innovation in science and technology. Sustained development is underpinned by a robust and equitable school education system that equips young people with the skills and understandings to continue with science, mathematics and related courses in the tertiary sector.
Recent reports from the Australian Councils of Deans of Science indicate that there is a shortage of qualified science and mathematics teachers, particularly in rural and regional schools. The significance of a broader and better scientifically and mathematically literate community is becoming ever more essential as we continually move to a less sustainable and increasingly energy-hungry footprint.
Our Graduate Diploma in Science is designed to allow teachers to up skill in science and mathematics to broaden their teaching capabilities. However, the course is also available to others interested in exploring these subject areas further. Note that the course is only available on a part time basis.
