Teaching degrees prepare professional educators who can facilitate, lead, organise, plan, assess and manage students of different ages and capabilities. A teacher?s focus should be to instil a love of learning in students as well as help them further seek self-improvement and development.

The first years of teaching education focus on acquiring in-depth knowledge of the subjects that will be taught to future students in the broad fields of humanities, natural sciences and mathematics, languages, computer training. Later study years focus on acquiring pedagogical and teaching techniques. Future teachers can gain expertise in general disciplines, useful for teaching younger learners, or focus on one or two specialisation that will enable them to teach adolescents and adult learners.

Students take courses in teaching strategies, digital learning, social foundations, educational psychology, secondary education principles and multicultural foundations. Future teachers are also required to complete a teaching internship prior to obtaining their licensure. Key teaching skills include teacher-learner identity, policy, schooling and society, how to create learning-teaching environments, cultural sensitivity, understanding children and adolescents, curriculum development, and more.

Teachers can practice in a great variety of settings such as elementary, middle, high school, university, special education, vocational education, alternative learning, distance learning (online).
