Students undertake a six-week classroom placement as a pre-service teacher and receive feedback on their teaching practice from their UTS tertiary supervisor and their supervising classroom 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 curating and annotating the portfolio within the framework of the APST (teacher standards). In the supervised teaching placement in schools, students apply learning from a variety of sources in school settings during a workplace experience. Students receive feedback on their teaching practice and progress regarding attainment of teaching domain standards during professional experience placement from their UTS Tertiary Supervisor and their Supervising Teacher.
