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Where a student is denied approval for a blue card, enrolment in any initial teacher education program will be withdrawn (refer to https://www.bluecard.qld.gov.au/disqualification.html).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).

Synopsis

Recognising the multiple roles of a teacher and the resultant complexity of teaching features in this course, pre-service teachers further develop an understanding of the demands of the profession, and investigate the variance in learners and the significance of planning to provide quality learning opportunities for all learners. Furthermore, they recognise that managing and responding to challenging learner behaviour is essential to maintain a supportive learning environment. Pre-service teachers design a sequence of lesson plans and formative assessment tasks that provide specific learning opportunities to a learner with a distinctive need.

A 10-day professional experience placement is attached to this course. For full details of the Professional Experience particulars, please refer to the Professional Experience website and the Professional Experience Book.
