EDU3CAT

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject will present pre-service teachers with understandings and knowledge of the importance of continuity in the learning experience. Pre-service teachers will engage with particular transition practices which form a component of the year prior to formal school and which support young children's entry to the school system. Attention will be given to key issues impacting on effective and supportive transition for students between early learning settings and school contexts. Pre-service teachers will develop skills and strategies that are responsive to sector based policies and practices to support children's wellbeing and safety and their engagement in learning, and which reflect knowledge and understanding of relevant legislation and curriculum requirements. Particular consideration will be given to the correlation between the Australian Curriculum and the Early Years Learning Framework. A range of strategies to effectively engage families and professional colleagues in these aspects of the learning process will be examined. Professional Experience of 20 days in a 3-5 year old early learning setting is included in this subject.
