Before commencing this course students will be assumed to have read the full details of Professional Experience particulars and familiarised themselves with the requirements. Please see the Education Placement Professional Experience website https://www.usq.edu.au/current-students/assessment/professional-experience and the Professional Experience Book for full details.
State law in Queensland (Australia) requires that all adults working/undertaking professional experience/researching with children under the age of 18, in the state of Queensland must hold a valid blue card http://www.bluecard.qld.gov.au/volunteers/doineedabluecard.html OR exemption card http://www.bluecard.qld.gov.au/faqs/exemption-card-faqs.html.
If undertaking placement outside of Queensland you must ensure that all relevant checks are completed and evidence of this is provided to the Professional Experience office http://www.usq.edu.au/current-students/assessment/professional-experience.
Students need to lodge their blue card application or renewal online . Students will need to register with blue card services and validate their identification online. If successful, the student will be provided an online account number to send to the Professional Experience Team to ensure there are no delays with their placement. Students will not be able to commence their placement without a current blue card. USQ recommends students lodge their renewal at least 28 days prior to the expiry of their current card. https://www.usq.edu.au/current-students/academic/education-placements/blue-cards
Where a student is denied approval for a blue card, enrolment in any initial teacher education program will be withdrawn (refer to https://www.bluecard.qld.gov.au/disqualification.html).
If undertaking Professional Experience outside of Queensland, students are advised to check the Working with Children requirements of the state within which Professional Experience will be undertaken (refer to https://www.usq.edu.au/current-students/assessment/education-placements/working-with-children).
The coursework in EDM8100 focuses upon the implementation of a data driven instruction cycle through the Graduate Teacher Performance Assessment (GTPA). The course requires pre-service teachers to gather evidence of the teacher they are becoming and evaluate the impact this has upon their learners as well as justifying their repertoire of teaching practices.
This course contains a 25-day placement and is the final Professional Experience Placement within the following contexts:
MELT program, the placement is in a school setting (in the English curriculum area) from Prep to Year 3 with preservice teachers observing at least one lesson in Yr 4 - Yr 6) for exposure to upper primary.
