Preservice Teacher

The role of the preservice teacher is to undertake professional experience with commitment, both as a key component of their initial teacher education program and as an opportunity to participate in the life of the professional experience site and contribute as a professional. When undertaking professional experience, preservice teachers learn about being a member of the teaching profession through the example set by supervising teachers as well as through the organised modelling and assessment that occurs through each placement. Central to the development of preservice teachers is their engagement with and demonstration of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers Adobe PDF document External Link at the graduate career stage as they progress through their program.

Your expectations as a preservice teacher are detailed in the Roles and Responsibilities detailed in the Queensland Professional Experience Reporting Framework Adobe PDF document External Link
