St Thomas Aquinas Teaching Schools Institute

Catholic Education Tasmania has embarked on an innovative journey as we partner with Alphacrucis College and Campion College to provide innovative high-quality teacher education right here in Tasmania.

With the formation of the St Thomas Aquinas Teaching Schools Institute, Tasmanian school leavers and young adults who seek a vocation in Catholic education will now be able to commence their careers as Catholic teachers—working in Tasmanian Catholic schools while they study for a teaching degree—from day one of their course.

Degrees offered as part of this program include a Bachelor of Education (Primary) and Bachelor of Education (Secondary): four years full-time, and a Master of Teaching (Primary) and Master of Teaching (Secondary): two years full-time.

The Teaching Schools Model flips the conventional model of teacher training, by bringing exceptional higher education onsite to our very own Tasmanian Catholic schools.

What will your Teaching Schools journey look like?

  • One to two days per week working as a Teacher Assistant with a Mentor Teacher
  • One day per week face-to-face leactures/intensives at the Teaching schools
  • A number of intensive lecture weeks each year delivered at the Teaching schools
  • 350 days of school-based experience by the completion of your degree
