Content

This unit allows pre-service teachers to explore a range of youth health and wellbeing issues that can impact on young people's ability to take advantage of educational opportunities, and to reflect upon and explore their own values and attitudes to a range of issues that can be personally confronting, such as alcohol and other drugs, mental health, and wellbeing and safety.

This unit develops teamwork skills that mimic a school curriculum-planning environment. Through the use of specific case studies of a range of youth, including those from diverse linguistic, cultural, religious and socioeconomic backgrounds, emphasis is placed on understanding the ways in which diversity shapes learning in the school context, particularly in terms of health and wellbeing.

The unit also provides the opportunity to engage with a number of approaches to working with young people and other stakeholders in the schools, and exposure to a variety of current policy and practice, curriculum, initiatives and programs that are currently being utilised in schools and other agencies around health and wellbeing issues.
