Content

Promoting Student Wellbeing is a compulsory unit designed to assist pre-service teachers to critically explore the relationship between health, wellbeing and education. In particular, students will engage in critical analysis about the social, political and curricular frameworks related to wellbeing and health. 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, experiences and attitudes to a range of issues that can be personally confronting. Students will consider how they influence teaching and learning, and how schools may protect, support and affirm the wellbeing of young people, teachers and their broader school communities. The unit has important and critical direct links to teaching practice both inside and outside the classroom.
