Re: I want to train to become a teacher in Australia.
Studying in Oz can be done.
You can study distance learning too, you can do some courses via
Or the local uni might do some external places, you do work online and teaching at your local school. These are usually full time or part time.
But depends on what you want to do, you may want to study on campus at Uni.
Teacher training usually attracts mature students, so very unlikely you would be the only one. My hubby had a lady who qualified at the age of 40 at his old school in England. Think quite a few women go into teaching either after being at home with kids, or just wanting career change.
Only thing is Ive heard newly qualified teachers may have to do rural service first. Basically you work in rural school for a year or two. Then move back to the city. But dont know the details of this.
Cant really advice about whats best course/uni in Oz. Except if its what you want go for it! Its never too late.
