About the Authors
  • Teaching placements can be a challenging experience for pre-service educators. The second edition of Success in Professional Experience facilitates the development of the fundamental knowledge, skills and competencies required to prepare for and strengthen confidence during placements, with a focus on students building relationships within their educational communities. This edition has been fully revised and features two new chapters on assessment and planning for success in learning along with sample planning documents and lesson plan templates. In-chapter activities, reflections, case studies and links to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST) reinforce student understanding. Additional online resources are available on a comprehensive companion website. Success in Professional Experience is an essential resource to support pre-service primary and secondary school teachers throughout the practical course components of their degree.

    • Features links to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST)
