All core and elective subjects must be completed before students can enrol in their final subject, EDC421 Transition to the Teaching Profession. Students will need to contact hum-ed-ouaprac@curtin.edu.au requesting permission to enrol in EDC421 Transition to the Teaching Profession. Once we have confirmation that the student has satisfied the above requirements, then the restriction will be lifted.

This final subject will allow students to demonstrate their attainment of skills, knowledge and attributes as a professional. During a sustained 10 week (50 days) professional placement experience students will plan and maintain a supportive learning environment, and implement and assess a sustained teaching program in an early childhood or primary classroom. They will demonstrate they are able to meet the needs of all children by taking into account the need to plan for and teach children with diverse cultural backgrounds, abilities and needs.
