Curriculum Objective

This final primary Professional Experience (PEX) subject involves the Teacher Education Student (TES) taking full responsibility for a classroom and develop more fully a range of skills, knowledge and attitudes more closely related to those of beginning teaching. In this 30-day PEX, the TES will have full responsibility for observing, planning, implementing, assessing students and reporting, and evaluating units of work, including embedding individualised programs for specific school students to support inclusion and diversity. The TES will consider the gaps and silences evident in discourses about learners and learning and critically engage with ethical practices for inclusivity. A mandatory requirement of this PEX is that TES submit a Teacher Performance Assessment (TPA), the details of which are on the Moodle for this placement and in the A3TPA Guidebook.
