PPA3211 Second Professional Practice
Credit Points: 15

This five week Professional Practice unit is intended to provide pre-service teachers with the opportunity to work with school students over an extended period of time. During the Professional Practice, pre-service teachers have the opportunity to work with mentor teachers and their classes, to learn and practice 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, to learn more of the pastoral care system in the school, and implement the school’s strategies for managing the behaviour of students. The Professional Practice requires a full time commitment in a secondary school for five weeks.
