Undertaking a placement in a STEM specialist school provides pre-service teachers with additional skills and experiences required for a range of educational settings.
Having the ability to teach and integrate STEM across all learning areas is vital to teachers and enables children to develop the skills needed to constantly adapt in a dynamic and evolving global landscape.
We have established STEM professional experience opportunities in four secondary schools where pre-service teachers gain specialised skills and participate in a STEM focused mentoring program. In addition to these, we have a large number of STEM specialist primary and secondary schools across the state suitable for professional experiences.
Our specialist pre-service teacher STEM schools also provide opportunities for all pre-service teachers to participate in a tailored professional learning program.
We encourage pre-service teachers from all specialist areas to participate in additional professional learning to broaden their cross-curriculum skills and prepare for a career in public education.
