What they're saying

Testimonial

Michael McGirr
Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Education); Master of Early Childhood

"After completing my Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Education) at Macquarie, I commenced my career working as an educator in a community-based long day care centre. I am currently employed at the Northern Sydney Institute as a full time TAFE teacher, and am enjoying the challenge of my role as a student and adult educator.

I am using this course for professional development and to further my professional knowledge, whilst challenging myself in both my teaching and my learning. This course is increasing the quality of my teaching and, therefore, increasing the quality of learning for my own students.”
