In Professional Practice 5 - The Internship, pre-service teachers consolidate their 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 the student and a mentor teacher and supports the transition of the 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). Students take an active role in all aspects of the professional work of teachers and use the standards to evaluate their practice, develop a personal professional philosophy of teaching and identify professional learning needs and goals.
