Academic Dean Update

Semester 3 is now open for enrolment! Both current and new students can enrol/apply through the National Institute enrolment portal. Semester 3 (13 November to 19 January) is a great time to take advantage of the school holidays. We would love to have you studying your Master of Education or Master of Education (Leadership) with us.

Even if you are not sure about committing to a Masters course, you can now enrol as a ‘single-unit’ student. This allows you to ‘try-out’ Institute study and receive credit later for the unit studied. Also, the new New South Wales Education Standards Authority (NESA) guidelines allow for a postgraduate unit of study to “be recognised [for up to] 120 hours of professional development within a teacher’s maintenance cycle” (NESA, Further Undergraduate and Postgraduate Studies Policy: Maintenance of Accreditation, p. 6). Imagine what that could mean for those needing PD hours!

Remember, National Institute courses are fully TEQSA-accredited AQF 9 (Masters) level studies developed and taught by a faculty of doctoral scholars dedicated to the mission and vision of our CEN schools. With personalised attention and the opportunity to study together with your colleagues, there is no better place for you to continue your professional development.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss your career path, feel free to contact the National Institute or call us on 02 4773 5888.
