This unit examines the concepts and practices of the profession including systems, structures, legislation and teacher standards that impact on teaching practice; current political and sociocultural trends in education that shape pre–service teachers’ understanding as they transition into the teaching profession. This unit critically investigates professional practice, roles and responsibilities, professional partnerships, and concepts of accountability in teachers’ work. A range of curriculum perspectives will be explored including, literacy, numeracy, ICT, Indigenous and intercultural understanding, sustainability, and gender practices. Pre–service teachers will consolidate evidence of their professional work practice in a substantive body of work and develop a critical investigation of their practice as a teacher.
