As in PEX 1, pre-service teachers undertake a six-week classroom placement and receive feedback on their teaching practice from their UTS tertiary supervisor and their supervising school teacher. The coursework component focuses on bringing together students’ knowledge and teaching practices gained throughout the course to successfully complete the Teacher Performance Assessment (TPA). In the TPA, students plan, teach, assess and evaluate the outcomes of a formal, whole-class assessment task to comply with the Assessment for Graduate Teaching (AfGT). The subject culminates in pre-service teachers curating their portfolio within the framework of the APST (teacher standards) and producing annotations focused on their learning throughout the course that contributes to becoming an effective secondary teacher.
