Internship (EDUH4006)


As a final component of Professional Experience, the Internship is a bridge between the ending of pre-service professional preparation and the first year of teaching. Under the guidance of the Mentor teacher, Interns will gain knowledge and experience of all facets of the role of the teacher in the school and prepare themselves as thoroughly as possible for their first year of teaching. During the Internship pre-service teachers are expected to consolidate and refine the Standards achieved within previous fully supervised Professional Experience units. Students will also be required to complete an Action Research Project.
