This is the last of six units in the Education Studies Major. It focuses on the transition from being a student teacher-in-preparation to being a beginning teacher. One aim of the unit is to consolidate the links between theory and practice emphasised in all Units of the Education Major. Another aim is to ensure that graduating students have the knowledge to take their place on the staff in a school. A third aim is to ensure that students are conceptually prepared to recognise schools as institutions and communities of learners and are able to negotiate confidently within them as beginning teachers. The unit attends to the notion of teachers as reflective practitioners and practitioner researchers who undertake ongoing enquiry while they deal with the everyday practice of teaching. A part of this unit is spent in schools.


Task 1: Self analysis - Students undertake a critical analysis of their preparedness to enter the teaching profession (2000 words, 50%)

Task 2: Research task - Students will undertake a small research task that can inform school policy and practice. (2000 words, 50%)
