Master of Teaching Practice

The Master of Teaching Practice (MTP) Secondary and Primary program has been designed for RMIT students (pre-service teachers) to develop and enhance professional teaching skills through sound knowledge of theory, contemporary practice and issues in education. Pre-service teachers will critically engage with relevant professional and theoretical knowledge and skills in teaching, learning and education. While building knowledge and skills they will learn to investigate emerging theoretical trends as they apply to  teaching, including the latest technologies used in the field. This suite of skills and experiences will underpin and be informed by research and critical assessment of complex education directions and issues.

All pre-service teachers undertake a series of work integrated learning experiences (WIL/placement) in schools and other educational settings throughout the program. During these experiences pre-service teachers will progressively demonstrate achievement of each descriptor of the AITSL Standards for Graduating Teachers. They will also undertake a capstone teaching performance assessment in the final year that comprises their final teaching placement and an action research project.

Successful completion of the final teaching performance assessment and a record of successful performance against all AITSL Graduate Teacher Standards are requirements for graduation.
