Promoting Student Wellbeing is a compulsory unit designed to assist pre-service teachers to explore a range of health and wellbeing issues that can impact on young people's ability to take advantage of educational opportunities. Regardless of the discipline area taught in schools, all teachers have a role to play in the promotion of student wellbeing. This unit is designed to engage students in teaching and learning experiences that not only build knowledge and understanding of health and wellbeing issues but also require students to reflect and explore their own values and attitudes to a range of issues that can be personally confronting. As inclusive and supportive school environments are increasingly being regarded as vital to students’ social and emotional development, it is important for classroom teachers to gain an understanding of the health and wellbeing issues that affect young people. This unit focuses on providing students with an overview of a range of issues that can impact on student wellbeing and an understanding of current policy and practice that affects approaches to addressing health and wellbeing issues in schools. It will offer students the opportunity to engage with a number of approaches to working with young people around health and wellbeing issues and expose them to a variety of initiatives and programs that are currently being utilised in schools and other agencies. This unit will provide students with practical strategies for the classroom and knowledge that is relevant to professional experience and practice.
