Primary teaching is a stimulating and rewarding career option. As a primary school teacher, you will provide the foundation for lifelong learning in young minds. You will help students develop thinking, learning and problem-solving skills.

Why choose this course?

With our Bachelor of Education (Primary) degree, you will study all key learning areas under the guidance of academics skilled in the relevant fields of education. The program will prepare you to teach across Prep to Year 6. You can choose to tailor your qualification by including a sequence of four units in a topic of interest. If you select this option, these minor units can help you gain a deeper understanding of topics such as Indigenous education or inclusive education.

Career outcomes

You will be prepared to teach Prep to Year 6 in a primary school. Teachers develop a range of skills which, in combination with work experience and personal qualities, may equip them for a variety of careers including community education officers and training developers.

Advanced standing

As this course is being implemented progressively over time, prospective students who intend to apply for advanced standing should contact the faculty to seek advice on whether suitable units will be available for enrolment.

Blue card

You'll need to apply for a blue card because you'll be working with children or young people as part of this course. There's no cost if you apply through QUT.

Submit your blue card application to the QUT Student Centre as early as possible - ideally, as soon as you've received your offer.

If you don't receive your blue card before the start of a unit that requires contact with children, you may be unable to participate and your grades may be affected. You may also still have to pay fees for the unit.

How to apply for a blue card

Literacy and numeracy course requirements

All Bachelor of Education students are required to satisfactorily complete assessment criteria relating to Queensland College of Teachers' (QCT) literacy and numeracy standards in order to meet course and QCT professional accreditation requirements. Literacy and numeracy modules have been developed as a remedial action for students who do not attain satisfactory standards on the relevant literacy and/or numeracy criterion during their assessment in the first year of their studies. Students will have the support of the First Year Experience Coordinator. Students may attempt these modules any number of times and unsatisfactory results within course work and these modules may result in a recommendation for an exit from the four year degree.


Caboolture students may need to transfer to the Kelvin Grove to complete some future years of the course. The full course is offered at Kelvin Grove campus.
