What have we done?
The revised Standards and Procedures require universities to establish partnerships with all schools where professional experience students are placed and set out requirements for communication between schools and providers. The requirements make explicit the expectations of supervising teachers and assessment against the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
Throughout 2015 we have detailed the essential elements of effective professional experience, with supporting video examples of great practice.
What will the impact be?
All initial teacher education students will develop strong pedagogical skills through theory and practice linkages, will be rigorously assessed, and will be more confident and 'classroom-ready' upon graduation.
