Aims and objectives

This is the first of four professional experience units for the Bachelor of Education (Primary) and the first of five professional experience units for the Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Primary). In this unit pre-service teachers in the Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Primary) 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. Students in the Bachelor of Education (Primary) course will undertake 20 days of professional experience in an approved Primary School setting, with children in a Preparatory classroom 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) and demonstrate competence against all the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST) appropriate to the course stage of this professional experience.
