This course is to be completed with EDBED1016 as the associated first year professional experience in an educational setting such as a school or an early childhood or learning centre. Students will focus on active observations, small group work, interactions with students and staff and classroom planning, allowing them to begin applying knowledge and skills gained from their university courses under the guidance of a Mentor Teacher/Educator. They will complete five days of professional experience in the education setting specified below for their particular program. Students are required to complete the activities outlined in the Professional Experience Assessment Report (Form A). This will take place in collaboration with their school-based Mentor Teacher/Educator in the placement setting (as indicated below). The students will also document their professional learning in Professional Experience Preservice Teacher Learning Log (Form B) supported by their assigned University Mentor. The requirement to complete Forms A and B will enable students to reflect on their learning and successful completion of the Professional Experience placement.

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
