Syllabus

This unit is designed to develop a pre-service teachers pedagogical content knowledge for Languages teaching.

In this unit students will engage in a placement for 15 days in a Secondary School (10 days for Graduate Entry Students) providing the opportunity for pre-service teachers to demonstrate the ability to plan and teach for a sustained period of time consolidating their teaching skills.
