Subject outline

This subject is second part of two parts taken in successive semesters that together constitute the 30 credit point subject EDU4RE2.

The subject integrates theory and practice through reflection, observation, inquiry and adaptation to a range of school contexts. The placement hurdle incorporates a Graduate Teacher Performance Assessment (GTPA).  The GTPA enables graduate teachers to demonstrate how they align curriculum, pedagogy and assessment, taking account of school contexts and learner diversity. The GTPA addresses 5 practices, of which a minimum of 4 must be of a satisfactory standard.  The subject provides confirmation of graduate teachers readiness for classroom teaching.

Compulsory Professional Experience: Pre-service teachers must undertake this 25 day professional experience placement in a Primary school setting.
