Course descriptionPlacement 3 is the third of a series across the four years of the programme.
Placement 3 consists of an 11 week teaching placement block (with a maximum of 2 weeks industrial placement also included in semester 1).

Continuity with previous placements is evident through similar approaches and outcomes but, as befits students' increasing confidence and experience, provides deeper and more sustained challenges. In Placements 1 and 2 they have been learning about the complex interrelationships between the learners, school systems and curriculum including the professional community. This strand continues in Placement 3, linking to the major themes of the Design and Technology Curriculum and Pedagogy courses and Education courses 1A, 1B, and 2. It also develops the themes of social justice and inclusion which will be studied in depth in the subsequent university-based Education 3 course 'Equity, Inclusion and Diversity - what does this mean for teaching and learning?' Therefore specific attention will be drawn to individual needs of the learners during this placement and this experience will provide a grounding for the studies in Education 3 particularly and semester 2.

The students have also been developing an understanding about curriculum learning areas, focussing on Design and Technology related, and the across learning responsibilities. This placement provides opportunity for the students to develop their curriculum and pedagogy through increased classroom and workshop teaching experience with a wider range of classes and a wider range of stages.
