    This unit provides an introduction to the educational workplace through the eyes of an educator. The unit will provide an introduction to the culture, structure and organisation of educational workplaces and investigate the roles of people whose professional lives focus on helping others to learn. Through participation in 10 days of placement in a workplace, students will develop and utilise the skills of observation and reflection to analyse and interpret the many facets of educational workers and their workplace. Workplaces will largely be schools, but will also include community and cultural centres in the ACT region.
