Aims and objectives

This is the second of four professional experience units for the Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Teaching). In this unit pre-service teachers will undertake 20 days of professional experience in an approved early childhood setting, with children aged two to five years under the supervision of approved mentors. The unit provides pre-service teachers with knowledge, skills and dispositions needed to teach children effectively. Pre-service teachers will gain knowledge about a variety of theoretical approaches to curriculum and assessment and become familiar with the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) appropriate to the course stage of this professional experience.
 
Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to: 

1. Plan, implement and evaluate learning experiences
2. Modify learning environments to ensure safety and to facilitate learning
3. Demonstrate professional relationships with education professionals, children and families
4. Critically reflect upon teaching and learning experiences
5. Navigate relevant Early Childhood framework documents and identify appropriate resources to support
teaching and learning
