This unit has been designed to be taken in conjunction with your final professional experience placement.

This unit prepares students for their transition into professional practice as teachers and invites students to develop a deep and actionable understanding of their current and future role as a teacher. Drawing on a range of research evidence and the knowledge, skills and professional experiences developed during their course, students complete a teaching performance assessment (TPA) in which they plan, teach, assess and reflect and represent this work in an online platform. They analyse a range of evidence and critically reflect on their performance. They depict their progress against Graduate Teacher Standards and graduate attributes they have developed that enable them to be classroom ready.


Upon successful completion of this unit students should be able to:

  1. develop and document evidence of the impact of their teaching practice on the learning outcomes of the students they teach
  2. document and provide evidence of their professional practice against achievement of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers at the Graduate level
  3. evaluate and reflect on their knowledge and skills as professionals and identify areas for future professional learning
