With the guidance of the Mentor Teacher interns will apply their knowledge, skills and understandings around early childhood teaching and learning in an early childhood centre, explore the legal, social and ethical responsibilities associated with being a member of the Early Childhood profession, and consider their responsibility as educators in local, national and global early education teaching communities. The intern assumes teaching and related duties within an early childhood program in collaboration with a qualified early childhood teacher mentor.
