The Internship unit offers pre-service teachers in their final trimester an extended opportunity to gain experience working semi-independently as a teacher in either an early childhood centre, or a primary or secondary school. Participants will have completed successfully the Deakin Authentic Teacher Assessment (ATA). During the Internship, participants will be required to demonstrate competence in the core work of teachers, i.e. planning, assessing and evaluating for learning; selecting and utilising appropriate pedagogies and technologies; recording and reporting on student progress to key stakeholders, building appropriate relationships with students and colleagues and participating in the life of the school and community.

In the Internship, participants will teach and work for 10 weeks, in order to further develop and consolidate their knowledge and skills in the daily work of teachers. During this time, they will be provided with academic supervision and support through both face –to-face consultations and online communication. Over the course of the internship, participants will be required to keep a learning log where they raise concerns and questions for discussion with supervisors and/or online communication to regularly reflect on their own learning as well as the progress of their students.


Students enrolled in this unit will receive an ungraded pass/fail result based on submission of a professional teaching portfolio. The portfolio covers the following four areas: School context, Teaching: Design Implementation and teaching relationships and Analysis, reflection and Action.
