This unit aims to deepen students’ understandings and develop the skills needed to be a member of the teaching profession. It has three foci. The first will address professional ethics and responsibilities. It focuses on developing students’ understandings and ability to apply the key principles described in codes of ethics and conduct for the teaching profession. The second will address essential legislative, administrative and organisational knowledge for the beginning teacher.
