The Professional Experience placement is central to the Initial Teacher Education program. EDUC 7206 is the first of two placements in the Master of Teaching degree. This 20-day Professional Experience course prepares Pre-service teachers for their secondary school placement in a Department for Education, Independent, Lutheran or Catholic school. The course complements the capstone component of the teaching degree and supports Pre-service teachers achieving their Teacher Performance Assessment (TPA) through the formative development of both their teaching skills and e-Portfolio which are aligned to the Australian Professional Standard for Teachers (APST).
