Nearly 80 per cent of ACU education graduates have secured full-time employment.
ACU education graduates enjoy good employment outcomes, with nearly 80 per cent of those who completed their studies in 2013 securing full-time employment after graduation.
The University is one of the largest providers of teacher training in the country, with almost 9,000 education students enrolled last year.
ACU education graduates teach in Catholic, government and independent schools.
ACU’s acting Vice-Chancellor Professor Pauline Nugent said graduate destination survey data shows that the University’s education graduates are well received by employers.
“ACU education students are equipped with the skills, knowledge and experience needed to become world-class teachers,” Professor Nugent said.
“Our students are also given the opportunity to gain the additional qualifications required to teach in Catholic schools, maximising their chances for employment across all sectors.
“The University’s commitment to the Catholic intellectual tradition, the pursuit of knowledge, the dignity of the human person and the common good, means that our graduates make for well-rounded teachers.”
“The quality of the education ACU students receive is clearly reflected in the numbers of our graduates finding employment.”
ACU is Australia’s only truly national university with seven campuses around the country.
