Professional Practice 4 provides you with opportunities for full immersion in all aspects of professional practice and critical reflection during your final supervised professional experience. You will undertake 30 days professional experience comprising five one day visits to prepare you for the continuous five week (25 day) teaching block in a classroom environment. Embedded in this unit is the Graduate Teacher Performance Assessment (GTPA), a culminating authentic assessment designed to enable you to demonstrate achievement of the professional standards and provide confirmation of your readiness for classroom practice. Your response to this task will be a reflection of your teaching practice including the elements of teaching, planning, assessing and reflecting through demonstrating your ability to use data to improve learning and teaching by aligning curriculum, pedagogy and assessment taking into consideration school contexts and learner diversity. The block placement culminates in the completion of the Final Professional Experience Recommendation form through measuring the standard that has been achieved by you through comparing it against the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (Graduate Career Stage). Achieving the Graduate Career Stage illustrates your readiness to enter the workplace. You must pass all assessment tasks to pass this unit.
