Paper Structure

The main focus of the professional experience will be the ten weeks in a school context.

This will be supported by a professional experience briefing through a panopto (available in July) and an optional hui during July (Tuesday 19th 10am).

Moodle will be used for announcements. It is vital that all professional requirements for this professional experience are met consistently over the ten weeks.

Professional requirements

On graduation from an Initial Teacher Education Programme the provider must attest to The Teaching Council of Aotearoa New Zealand | Matatū Aotearoa that you are a person:

  • of good character
  • are fit to be a teacher
  • have met the Standards for the teaching profession.

A student who has not met these criteria based on evidence collected as they engage in papers across the ITE programme cannot graduate. Indicators that you are of good character and fit to teach includes: regular and punctual attendance and positive contribution in class; the ability to relate to peers, children, teachers, and university staff appropriately; and the ability to plan for a safe high-quality teaching and learning environment. At the completion of each paper the lecturer is asked to attest to the Academic Coordinator or Programme Leader that you have displayed the attributes required of an effective teacher.

These expectations reflect the Teachers Council document entitled Our Code Our Standards: Code of Professional Responsibility and Standards for the Teaching Profession (Code of Professional Responsibility and Standards).
