I want to! It's the only thing I have ever wanted to do and the further I get along in school, I can see me being a great teacher even more

I've heard of one from Prep-10. Might be a Monash course. Not really sure at all, it's just in my head for some reason.
Yep! The reason I'm trying in VCE is so I can get into secondary teaching and help kids not to make the same mistakes I did lol. (And I do like teaching quite a bit).
Who's going for a double in Arts/S.Ed next year at Monash Clayton?

Take a look at the Victorian Institute of Teaching site for all the information you need. From what I've read, the two main ones are Monash University's Bachelor of Education (P-10) and Victoria University's Bachelor of Education (P-12).

This was originally on my list of preferences after I completed my VCE several years ago, but I opted to do straight Arts and then complete a graduate-entry teaching degree (at present, I'm studying the MTeach at Melbourne). In hindsight, I'm glad I chose the BA -> MTeach path rather than the BA/BEd double degree as I've heard that BEd degrees in general are too saturated in theory. Somebody on this forum stated not long ago that BEd students at Monash have the bulk of their placement days crammed into fourth year as well, which I think is bad. That was a primary student teacher though, so it might be different for secondary candidates.

As the MTeach at Melbourne is only a two-year degree, it cuts out most of the theory (not all) and devotes more time to the practicalities of teaching, which I'm enjoying thoroughly. Your placement day are spread throughout the whole degree too; you're in a school for at least two days EVERY week. One of the main reasons I chose it!

BA Monash, MTeach Melb., GradCertEd Melb.

Say if you do a bachelor of mathematics at UoM, how would you go about adding a teaching degree? Whats a teaching degree like (as in what do you do). Im actually clueless in what the provess is in becoming a teacher.

I am, it's my first preference. I'm really hoping to get into it because I love the options that come along with doing a double degree compared to just a single education degree.

You get paid more and it's a higher degree so it is greater.

Bachelor of Mathematics, not sure if UoM have that. If you meant Bachelor of Science majoring in Mathematical Science or something similar to that you just need to do the pre requisite subjects to qualify for the Master of Teaching. I'm not 100% sure on what you study but you get work placements at schools and at uni you focus on what you choose to specialize in, math and chemistry for example.

It's only a couple thousand more. You can a better salary if you work somewhere other than Victoria or you get promoted to co ordinater, principal, subject head and things like that.

Teaching salary is based on years teaching and responsibilities within the school - not qualifications, sorry. And you don't get promotions based on qualifications, either; I'm not saying it's totally irrelevant, but it's mainly a matter of working your way up the ladder by applying progressively for higher positions of responsibility.

To become a teacher you can either do a full undergraduate degree or what is essentially a postgraduate diploma of one year (a couple of different options exist for the postgrad). You do two subjects per semester on theory of learning and teaching, plus two subjects on what you want to teach (ie what your undergraduate studies qualify you in).

Please note this is the qualification for secondary teaching! But secondary qualifications allow you to teach primary as well (it doesn't work the other way around, though).
