Aims and objectives

This is the final Primary placement unit within the early childhood degree. In this unit, pre-service teachers will undertake a 20 day professional experience placement in a primary school under the supervision of approved mentors. This unit aims to provide pre-service teachers with experience in an appropriate professional setting that will engage them to demonstrate competence against ALL the Australian professional standards for teachers at graduate level. This unit also ensures that pre-service teachers are ‘Ready to Teach’ and meet the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers: Graduate Stage.


Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
1. Construct pedagogical approaches in all areas of the relevant national and/or state or territory primary curriculum and implement curriculum and assessment (both formative and summative) to support learning [APST 5 & 2].
2. Develop lesson plans that reflect an ability to articulate aims, objectives, procedures, outcomes and evaluation practices [APST 1, 2 & 3].
3. Recommend teaching methods to cater for individual differences in children, including children with additional needs and those from cultural and Indigenous backgrounds [APST 1, 2, 3 & 4].
4. Examine and critically evaluate organisational policy and practice within the primary school [APST 7 & 6].
5. Design and implement practical strategies for creating effective and engaging learning environments, developing rapport with children and guiding children’s behaviour [APST 1 & 4].
6. Demonstrate and critically reflect upon teaching performance and professional readiness at an appropriate standard for a graduate teacher [APST 1-7].
