This is the first of two units in which students develop the required skills and contextual understanding for teaching specific technology specialisation within the Design and Technology or Vocational teaching area*. A key feature of this unit is the development of specific strategies to ensure safe and authentic learning experiences for classroom practice. Students will be required to complete a combination of practical and theoretical elements in their technology specialisation.
As a part of this unit, students will consider how the vocational education and training environment is experienced in secondary schools (for some technology areas this may also require a brief industry placement).
