Pre-service teachers will involve themselves in the life of the school and reflect on their practice and performance in discussion with their school supervisor and university staff. In preparation for their placement in schools, pre-service teachers engage with material relating to the primary curriculum, assessment, pedagogy and professional relationships and are prepared to demonstrate competence against ALL the Australian Professional Standards for teachers: Graduate stage and can therefore be deemed ‘Ready to Teach’.

2. Design learning environments to ensure safety and to facilitate learning
