Responsibility for understanding
If there is any doubt with regard to the requirements of any particular assignments or assessment procedure, the onus for clarifying the issue rests with the student who should contact the unit Convener or tutor. Further, it is the responsibility of students to ensure that they are correctly enrolled in the unit and that the tutor and Student Administration have their correct contact details.
Breakdown of hours
75 hours - professional experience
18 hours - workshops on campus
27 hours - workshop preparation

Successful completion of the professional experience placement is critical to success in the whole unit. Students must make themselves familiar with the processes and policies of professional experience available on the All Teacher Education Moodle site.
The professional nature of this unit also requires 100% participation at all learning activities (lectures, practicals etc. if scheduled – see section 3) for the successful completion of this unit. If attendance requirements cannot be satisfied (e.g., timetable clash), it is recommended that you meet with your Course Convener to schedule this unit for a future semester.
Required IT skills
Some familiarity with basic computer use is assumed.
Work placement, internships or practicums
This unit involves teaching in a school setting and therefore, additional student responsibilities are required in addition to those described in this section. Students are required to undergo a Working with Vulnerable People (WWVP) background check to undertake the observation tasks for this unit. Students are responsible for arranging their own checks through the ACT Office of Regulatory Services (pre-service teachers are volunteers in schools, and therefore their WWVP is free): https://www.accesscanberra.act.gov.au/app/answers/detail/a_id/1804
Please follow these instructions to ensure your Unit Convenor remains informed of your progress in your negotiated placement:
- Fill in the Professional Experience Placement Planner in collaboration with your school mentor. (This can be found on the CPP1 Moodle site and the All Teacher Education Moodle site). Indicate on the planner when your Interim and Final Report will be completed;
- Upload your Planner, as a draft, to this Moodle site using the drop-box;
- If your proposed schedule for the completion of your interim and Final Report changes, please upload a new Planner with the new dates.
This unit involves work placements hence it requires strict adherence to professional practice and principles and ethics. School, student, and/or research participant confidentiality must always be maintained, including for assessment items like reports or essays etc.
