    Mark Malone

    Master of Teaching and Learning (Primary)

    This course was ideal for me to change careers, and connect with peers and future employers. With an emphasis on real life examples and experiences, the dedicated and enthusiastic JCU staff have inspired me further to be a part of the teaching vocation and have a positive impact on learners for many years to come.

    Master of Teaching and Learning (Primary)

    By spending 11 weeks on my placement before completing my studies, the school and the staff really got to see what I was like as a teacher and how I constructed my classroom. That really helped me obtain employment with the school after graduation and it gave them the opportunity to see if I fit with their values.
