Professional experience in early childhood and primary school settings is a vital component of the program, comprising five subjects in the course.
From first year to fourth year, students gradually assume more responsibility for planning, teaching and management of classroom settings, as they progress through a range of experiences. This part of the course aims to enable students to develop an understanding of various early childhood services and the school system. It helps students to plan and implement learning experiences for young children under the guidance of an experienced teacher. Settings include those for children under three, three to five years, the first years of school, and middle and upper primary classes.
Opportunities exist for placement in a range of locations. Students undertake placements in both under five years and primary settings in the final professional experience in Session 8. These experiences are supported by qualified staff in the teaching setting and by University supervisors.
