Matthew Watson

Teaching graduate

“I’ve just finished my education qualifications and have been lucky enough to find full-time employment at John Therry Catholic High School, where I did my first teaching prac. I look at teaching as my mission in my life, where I work with others, for others.

ACU is a very friendly, engaging, supportive and caring environment. The teachers really do know your name, and you can go and see them and be assisted by them whenever you need.”

With more than 90 courses to choose from, there's one for you
