    Bachelor of Education (Health and Physical Education) [43J]


    The Bachelor of Education (Health and Physical Education) is a pre-service teaching degree that will give you the skills and knowledge to teach health and physical education from foundation through to year 12. This course is accredited through the Tasmanian Teachers Registration Board, and is recognised in all states and territories, so once you graduate you'll be qualified to teach anywhere in Australia.

    The course has been designed to develop teachers who can inspire people to be healthy for life, with a primary focus on the dimensions of health and wellbeing: physical, mental, emotional, social, environmental and spiritual.

    Responding to feedback from recent graduates, teachers and school leaders, we also offer several maths units so that graduates will be better prepared if they are asked to take maths classes by future employing schools

    You will be required to undertake a number of Professional Experience placements totalling 80 days. This will give you the opportunity to apply the theoretical and practical skills that you have learnt in a safe and supportive environment.

    The Bachelor of Education (Health and Physical Education) is available on-campus in Launceston.

    The program is informed by core theoretical knowledge, evidence-based practice and underpinned by a strong theory-practice nexus enacted in collaboration with appropriate employing authorities. At the core of the program is the pre-service teacher who is educated to:

    • Have ownership of a reasoned and critical perspective
    • Have capacity to operate inclusively in highly diverse contexts
    • Have curricular and pedagogical competence
    • Be appropriately collaborative and context-honouring in a community of learners
    • Have capacity to be resilient learners who make evidence-based lifelong contributions to their field

    The course content and practical experience provides theoretical and practical opportunities to practice what is learned in a safe and supportive environment.
