Principles for School Experience
More emphasis should be given to 'team teaching' to reduce the isolation and 'my class' concept. a) students working with each other on projects in schools, (b) working with College staff on projects in the school, (c) working as groups with peer groups at College. Many students will be placed in schools outside their home environment and will therefore be unaware of the community factors that help shape school policy, although students placed in schools in areas with which they are familiar are often unaware of these factors as well.

The points awarded to School Experience B and C represent the minimum requirement to comply with the Course Rules given the school experience component of School Studies A. Points are awarded to School Experience programs based on 1 point for 5 days of successful completion. Students selected for admission to, or re-enrolling in, the course for the award of Diploma of Teaching (Pnmary) and Bachelor of Education (Primary) should carefully study the course information in the handbook and thoroughly discuss the structure of the course with their course advisor before making their subject selections.
Subjects and Points
The above analysis has been prepared by the Course Committee to give lecturers and students guidance about the relative weight of each subject. Individual students will vary greatly in the time they will need to devote to achieving satisfactory completion of the required work.
Categorisation of Subjects
It is emphasized that satisfactory completion of a subject is not achieved simply by meeting a minimum time commitment in performing a particular task; it will ultimately depend on achieving the required work. It is envisaged that minimum total involvement time calculations will provide a means by which teachers and students can compare the extent of work required in subjects of varying nature, length, and grade value.
For the sake of the breadth of study and in accordance with the generalist aims of the course, 1st-year students are advised to choose A-level studies as follows:.
Subjects Not Listed in Table of Subjects
Students wishing to consider such studies, particularly those offered in the BEd (secondary) course, are advised to discuss the appropriateness and availability of such subjects with their course advisers. The course advisors are responsible for approving and approving registrations for subjects offered in another course at the college.
