Content

This unit prepares students to teach Health Education in the primary school setting and addresses the mandatory requirements a teacher has for Student Wellbeing. Student Wellbeing has increasingly become a central focus for schools, and current policy frameworks state that it is a responsibility of every classroom teacher. The aim of this compulsory unit is to develop students’ understanding of some of the issues that impact on student well-being, the contemporary policy contexts related to this area and the implications for their practice. Students will be expected to identify current education initiatives, including state policies together with national and global initiatives. The unit will prepare students to teach Health Education in the Victorian Curriculum. It addresses cross-curricular approaches to Health Education, in an increasingly crowded curriculum.
