Event description


FREE* Pre-Service Teacher workshop: ‘PrimaryConnections Ready’

Do you want to add a competitive edge to your CV?

Are you ‘PrimaryConnections Ready’?

Would you like to participate in twelve hours/ two days of primary science and literacy professional learning in an award winning, Australian Government supported program?

The ‘PrimaryConnections Ready’ program recognises that the beginning teacher has a myriad of professional responsibilities to deal with, and feeling confident, competent and ready to engage and work with their students in the important core learning area of science will be a significant advantage in that crucial first year of teaching.

Being ready to apply the knowledge and skills learnt through this professional learning program will be a valuable asset from the new teacher’s very first day!

About ‘PrimaryConnections Ready’ Pre-service Teacher Program
The twelve-hour ‘PrimaryConnections Ready’ Program assists pre-service teachers to learn about, understand and clarify:

  • the aims of the PrimaryConnections program
  • the major principles and pedagogy of PrimaryConnections
  • the power of the PrimaryConnections 5Es teaching and learning model
  • the important relationship between science and literacy
  • the “How-to tools” that enhance student learning in science and literacy
  • how the program is based on current research
  • the richness of the exemplary PrimaryConnections curriculum units and other resources

After completing this training, pre-service teachers will be able to:

  • effectively implement the PrimaryConnections 5Es teaching and learning model
  • provide their students with appropriately sequenced learning experiences to develop their understanding of science concepts through inquiry skills and literacy practices
  • feel confident, competent and ready to teach science effectively from the beginning of their teaching career
