Sessions would begin in Week 6, for a 2-hour block, once a week until the end of term.
Experienced teachers will provide 2 hours of support to preservice language teachers in the Master of Teaching course. The 2-hour block will be negotiated between the classroom teacher and the preservice teacher.
This is a curriculum immersion and not a practicum experience. However, there will be a practicum payment to compensate the classroom teacher for their time.
The preservice teachers:
- will visit the school and observe language classes in action
- will observe lessons (not teach), identify skills, and resources which they can use in their own career development
- have completed the Professional Experience 1
- have a Working With Children Check.
Number of placements needed:
- 2 Spanish
- 5 Japanese
- 2 Chinese
- 1 Greek
- 1 Italian
- 1 Arabic.
