This is a hybrid course. It is available to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. The course content, delivery and assessment will be identical for both groups of students.
Subject Area: Education
In this course you will develop a range of teaching skills and understandings essential to plan for and manage successful classrooms. You will complete a 1 day intensive orientation and a range of online activities, followed by a 4-week (20 day) supervised professional experience placement in a NSW school. Through ongoing observation, supervised teaching and contribution in the wider school community, the course ensures you work towards the achievement of the national standards for a graduate teacher. You will gain understandings of the range of activities that occur both inside and outside the classroom and the roles of the teaching and non-teaching staff within the school.
Before undertaking the placement component of Professional Experience 1, teacher education students must provide evidence that they can meet the IELTS (if appropriate) and national literacy and numeracy requirements, successfully complete a microteaching session in each Method 1 course, and be deemed ready to teach by both method tutors (via a student readiness report) before commencing their professional experience in schools. They also must provide evidence of having received a Working with Children Check and mandatory anaphylaxis training. In order to arrange timely professional experience placements, teacher education students must log in to the School of Education's online placement system (OPS) and enter requested information no later than week 1 of the semester.
