St Philip's Teaching School 2019
This year we welcome the second cohort of our St Philip’s Teaching School.
The Teaching School is a revolutionary way forward in teacher training, bringing exceptional higher education and training onsite to the St Philip’s group of schools.
The St Philip’s Teaching School partners with Alphacrucis College to offer students a Bachelor of Education embedded with practical application, with students being placed in classrooms as a trainee teacher from day one of their degree.
The entire training of teachers is done onsite in a St Philip’s School. Students who are accepted into the Teaching School program are placed in one of the six St Philip’s Schools where they work under a Mentor Teacher 1 -2 days per week gaining immediate practical application to the theory they are learning in their tertiary studies. The students convene for lectures 1 day a week and complete the remainder of their full-time course through a combination of intensives and online studies.
The St Philip’s Teaching School provides practical teacher training that inducts the student into the art and craft of teaching, embedded within the ethos of the St Philip’s Christian College group of schools.
Last year was our pioneering year of the Teaching School and it was a huge success. Throughout the year our Teaching School gained the interest of many educators, government officials and national media. This year we will be welcoming several of these groups to our Teaching School to observe what we are doing in this space. We are so excited for this new venture of the St Philip's Christian College group, and for the impact it will have on our young people and our future educators.
