TEAC 4007 Primary Professional Experience 4b: Transition into the Profession 2

Coordinator Jacqueline Humphries Opens in new window

Description This unit is an Internship and as such is an intensive period of in-school experience that will induct students into the nature, structure and organisation of schools and the work, roles and responsibilities of teachers. The internship is a valuable opportunity for further professional learning guided by an experienced mentor teacher. To allow a strong focus on quality of preparation, reflection and deep evaluation, the expectation is that each intern will teach 60 per cent of a full teaching load. Interns do not have to be supervised in the same way as a Pre-Service Teacher on previous professional experience units. Interns may be left unsupervised to take responsibility for groups of students. It is expected that Principals and Mentor Teachers will assign duties and responsibilities to Interns at a level appropriate for an early career teacher. The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) requires all Pre-Service Teachers entering an internship to have been assessed within the preceding supervised Professional Experience as achieving all the requirements of the Professional Standards for Graduate Teachers. As such the internship provides not only an opportunity for consolidation of these standards but also preparation towards standards appropriate for full accreditation at Professional Competence level in early teaching years.
