The Master of Teaching (Secondary) Internship consists of 200 credit points taken over three years while you are also employed and teaching at a secondary school.
You will complete 150 points over the first two years while teaching on a reduced teaching load (0.8 FTE), enabling time for university studies. In your final year, you will transition to full-time employment (1.0 FTE) while completing 50 points through capstone studies, or a research project.
Study is structured around five campus-based intensives with additional study conducted online throughout each year. The course starts in November with a 6-week study program and school induction. You will then commence employment in a school the following January from the beginning of Term 1.
The Master of Teaching (Secondary) Internship will qualify you for full registration with the VIT as a secondary teacher.
