This course is designed to provide Pre-Service Teachers (PSTs) with an introduction to the teaching profession. Guided by the current regulatory requirements, PSTs will be able to create and experience a professional learning community where learning is enhanced through social processes, dialogue and personal reflection. PSTs will participate in small group activities where they will make connections between different parts of the Master of Teaching program, formulate questions for inquiry, debate issues and learn thinking skills they can apply in a variety of professional contexts. This course helps to prepare PSTs for formal research by building an inquiring mind, exploring significant moments observed in school and early childhood contexts, and setting goals for future professional inquiries.

* excluding students enrolled in a Postgraduate Clinical Psychology, Professional Pathway Psychology or Professional Pathway Social Work program. For accredited program and student contribution information please visit our CSP page.
Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
