This course requires preservice teachers to develop an advanced understanding of a range of processes, pedagogies and practices designed to enhance positive outcomes for students in the senior phase of learning and the transition from school to a range of post-school options. Prospective Secondary preservice teachers will develop specialised skills and knowledge in a range of relevant areas including: the distinct needs of learners, Vocational Education and Training, career education and development; national policies and strategies for working with industry and employers; curriculum initiatives; and frameworks relevant to the senior phase of learning. Preservice teachers are to engage critically with relevant specialised literature and theory and demonstrate the capacity to analyse, synthesise and evaluate a range of initiatives and options which cater for the full range of students, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
