As a secondary teacher, you can contribute to the development and further growth of keen young adult minds in the real world. You can share your passion for your chosen teaching areas. 

In the Bachelor of Education (Secondary) you will choose a major and a minor teaching area depending on your desired career outcome. A good background in your selected teaching areas at Year 12 level (or equivalent) is strongly recommended.

Why choose this course?

Healthy, active living benefits individuals and societies in many ways. As a teacher of health and physical education, you have the opportunity to work with students to enhance their own and others’ health, wellbeing and physical activity participation in a range of varied and changing contexts. With QUT’s Bachelor of Education (Secondary) degree, you will gain an understanding of approaches to teaching and planning instruction in health and physical education for the senior and junior years of schooling. Your studies will include human anatomy and physiology, nutrition, game-based learning, and performance activity.

You will be taught by leading academics and equipped with quality support and cutting-edge resources. You will be prepared to teach subjects in the Australian Curriculum. 

Flexible delivery

You can choose to study either part time or full time. If you choose to study part time, evening classes may be available for some units.

Real-world learning

QUT organises professional experience placements to give you the opportunity to work in real school classrooms, supervised by practising professional educators. You may also have the opportunity to participate in additional learning experiences that are unique to QUT. Recently, a group of our students travelled to Vietnam and worked with local primary schools to deliver HPE classes and nutritional information to local students.

Learn from the best

You’ll be taught by staff with extensive experience as primary and high-school teachers, teacher educators, high performance coaches and coach consultants.

Many of our staff are active researchers and you can be confident that what you’re learning reflects latest industry knowledge and practice. Areas of recent research include sport coaching, skill learning and acquisition, educational psychology, and sport for development in marginalised communities.

Real-world facilities

QUT’s new sports facility at Kelvin Grove campus features an artificial turf sports field and adjacent amenities. The facility is used for teaching purposes across HPE and other health courses, and offers all QUT students an enhanced space for recreational sporting activities.

Career outcomes

Graduates will have a solid foundation of knowledge to teach health and physical education in secondary schools. Your career will be guided by, but not limited to, your chosen teaching areas. Teachers develop a range of skills which, in combination with work experience and personal qualities, may also equip them for a variety of careers including community education officers and training developers. Your qualification can also allow you to work in other locations within Australia and overseas.
