Whilst on this professional experience I

had the opportunity to engage in TEN
training where I advanced as a
professional in the mathematics strand
(APST 6.2).

As I commenced my professional
experience in 2015, I voiced a
concern of only being a student
and not being able to engage in
the daily occurrences of a real
teacher. My mentor took this on
board and I was able to attend
every training, workshop and
meeting she did.

This is evidenced through my mentor

teacher commenting on my
engagement with the training on a
weekly basis.

students benefited from having

Throughout this training there was a

team of five teachers where we all
were given the learning before
engaging in professional dialogue
creating pedagogical strategies to
implement the learning in the
classroom. Constructive feedback was
then shared and offered around the
team the following week on the
success of introducing the strategy

teacher practice.

This artefact demonstrates the

benefit of myself as a student
teacher attending professional
learning first hand on a school
level and being able to program it
into my teaching. Therefore, the
students have a greater prospect
to achieve results, as I am able to
deliver and implement this
content effectively.

I took the learning and strategies from

this training and implemented it into
the classroom mathematics strand.
From here, formative assessment was
used to check the success of the
learning (APST 6.4).
This is evidenced through my mentor
teacher commenting on the use of new
knowledge and implementing it into
learning activities.
