Unit Synopsis

In Professional Practice 5 (the Internship), you will consolidate your professional knowledge and skills by working as a member of a teaching team during a sustained period of professional practice. The internship is designed as a guided partnership between you and a mentor teacher and supports the transition of you as a pre-service teacher into an autonomous, collaborative, reflective educator who demonstrates the knowledge, skills and dispositions described in the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (Graduate Career Stage). You will take an active role in all aspects of the professional work of teachers and use the standards to evaluate your practice, develop a personal professional philosophy of teaching and identify professional learning needs and goals.

Unit learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:

  1. Participate in professional teams to contribute to effective teaching, positive learning environments and improved student outcomes
  2. Engage in all aspects of the teacher’s professional role to demonstrate the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers at graduate level
  3. Critically reflect on practice to validate a personal professional philosophy of teaching and identify goals for ongoing professional learning
  4. Produce evidence demonstrating the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers in the form of an e-portfolio.

Throughout the internship, all focus areas of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (Graduate career stage) which are applicable to the specific context, will be demonstrated with evidence. In contexts where specific standards related to students with disability or Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds cannot be demonstrated, assessment for relevant coursework should be added to the e-portfolio as evidence of meeting these standards.
