EDX4150 Transitions in Secondary Education

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Business, Education, Law and Arts
School or Department : School of Linguistics, Adult and Specialist Educ


In recent times both Federal and State Governments have identified the need to provide suitable pathways for students so they can transition effectively from the school setting to further study and training or into the workplace. This course will provide students with a framework for developing their knowledge and awareness of how the role of senior schooling is changing and also provide opportunities for students to reflect upon the changing role of the teacher in secondary schools. The course utilises a case study strategy to ensure the students meet and discuss contemporary issues related to pathways with experts in the school setting. With the emphasis upon supporting students as they choose the most appropriate pathways for their future, the students in this course will investigate processes currently in place related to career planning and education.
