Tacita Thorogood Studying Bachelor of Sport & Exercise ScienceBachelor of Education (Secondary) joint degree I always look forward to the workshops and the amount of hands-on experience I get with my studies each week. Its also a great way to meet other students. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m studying a joint degree to give me more career opportunities when I graduate. A highlight of my study at JCU has been the class sizes and the easy access I have to my lecturers outside of classes. They make me feel like a person and not just another student. In the immediate future I aim to work in the Townsville region teaching science and/or physical education to secondary school students. In the long term, I want to develop innovative new health and physical education programs within all schools to make health a life style, and not just something kids are told to do.

Lucy Tuttiett Studying Bachelor of Education (Primary) It was simple for me. I chose a Bachelor of Education (Primary) because I love to teach and I appreciate the whole process of learning. I also enjoy being a role model for children and giving them valuable life skills. JCU was my optimal choice, not only because the University offered the course I wanted, but also because Townsville is where I wanted to be for duration of my study. Learning with my fellow students in the relaxed environment of the University grounds has been a pleasure. One of the highlights of my time here has been taking classes from some very knowledgeable lecturers in the new Education Centre building. Ideally, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a primary or middle school teacher next year and love what I do.

Neerim Callope Studying Bachelor of Education (Secondary) I look forward to each semester. Thinking about meeting new lecturers, reconnecting with peers and furthering my knowledge makes it an exciting prospect for me. Studying to become a secondary school teacher has universal value. Eventually I plan to teach in remote Aboriginal communities, empowering people through education. First though, hope to take my skills abroad and experience other countries, perhaps teaching in Africa, Asia, England, or the United States. For me, a highlight of my JCU education is participation in the annual National Indigenous Tertiary Education Student Games, where I get to meet fellow students who are aspiring doctors, lawyers, teachers and artists. This event is just one of the many opportunities available here, and it inspires me to continue.

Why combine Arts and Secondary Education? Study a specialisation in the Bachelor of Arts to broaden your knowledge and skills, and bring greater depth to your secondary-school teaching expertise. You could include studies in English, French, History, German, Geography and Japanese. A Bachelor of Arts is also valuable for nonteaching careers in, for example, educational management or with government departments in policy and administration around children, families and community development.

Why combine Sports Science and Education? With this joint degree you can gain a teaching qualification to work in secondary schools as a physical education teacher. In addition you will have in-depth expertise in sport and exercise science for careers in the fitness and health industries. You will be well-qualified for training and education roles in health and fitness for government sports departments, community centres, sports centres, gyms, resorts and the tourism sector.

Why combine Science and Education? Secondary science teachers are in great demand. There is a high demand in schools for qualified and passionate science graduates to join their ranks and there are government incentives to assist, with lower HECS-Help rates and new scholarships. Combining Education with a Science degree gives you the best of both worlds – the ability to teach and inspire the next generation of budding scientists coupled with in-depth science knowledge.

Please note, all students require a Blue Card (a working with children check issued by the Queensland Commission for Children and Young People and Child Guardian) before commencing their professional experience placements.
