PPA3210 Second Professional Practice
Credit Points: 30
PPA2210 First Professional Practice
This 12 week Integrated Professional Practice unit (including five weeks in schools and 6 weeks on campus), is intended to provide pre service teachers with the opportunity to work with school students over an extended period of time, before reflecting on and evaluating their performance and setting goals for ATP in the fourth year of the course. During this Professional Practice, Pre-service Teachers have the opportunity to work with Mentor teachers and their classes, to learn and practise essential teaching skills and critically evaluate and reflect on their own experiences. Typically, Pre-service Teachers will teach in both major and minor areas during this Professional Practice period.
The five week Professional Practice also provides Pre-service Teachers with the opportunity to participate in some of the general duties undertaken by teachers, and to learn more of the pastoral care system in the school, and the way this links with strategies for managing the behaviour of students.  This Professional Practice requires a full time commitment in a secondary school for five weeks.
