Paper details:

Entry Requirements Well done on your decision to become a teacher. There is nothing more rewarding than knowing and seeing the evidence that you have made a positive impact on the lives of young people. All applications to commence study in our Bachelor of Education and Master of Teaching degrees require applicants to submit a 400-600 word Teaching Capabilities Statement in addition to your SATAC application. This supports the national priority to ensure those entering the teaching profession have the personal qualities to best support learners and graduate as classroom ready, high quality teachers. The Teaching Capabilities Statement complies with the national Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) initial teacher education program standard of academic and non-academic entry requirements. You would know that UniSA has a solid reputation for producing the highest quality teaching graduates being ranked number one in South Australia for graduate employment in education*. Therefore we endorse national initial teacher education program standards committed to graduating future educators with both the academic and personal qualities to maximise outcomes of all learners, whilst supporting sustained high quality teaching careers. UniSA’s commitment ensures that we remain at the forefront of exemplar education. *QILT: Graduate Destinations Survey 2015 and Graduate Outcomes Survey 2016-17 – Full-time Employment Indicator.

The 400-600 word Teaching Capabilities Statement written by the applicant about their motivation to teach, addressing the topics: Explain what you think teaching involves Outline the personal and academic qualities you possess that will enable you to become an effective teacher Describe your attitude to learning and provide an example of something you have learned that was meaningful The Teaching Capabilities Statement should include a list of relevant community service, volunteer or professional experiences, and significant awards. It is up to you how you write your statement, however, we believe writing in the first person and in a narrative style best supports your ability to share your personal perspective. We recommend avoiding a reporting or resumé style so that you can focus on presenting your personal qualities through your narrative style. The Teaching Capabilities Statement aims to focus applicants on thinking deeply about your choice of a teaching career and your skills, personal qualities and experiences that will contribute to your development into an exceptional and proficient teacher. Teaching Capabilities Statements need to meet the criteria of the three areas listed above and are assessed by trained staff through a moderation process. Upon acceptance in the program, you will reflect on the Teaching Capabilities Statement in building your self-reflexive practice and monitoring your growth as an educator.
