Abstract

To facilitate this additional experience, our project aims to connect preservice teachers studying secondary education at USQ with secondary schools who would like to embark on Head Start, USQ’s early tertiary entry program. Head Start offers a number of tertiary courses to high achieving students, studying at secondary school. Offering these tertiary subjects is attractive to secondary schools as it allows secondary students the opportunity to make a head start on their tertiary subjects and is also included as external study in their Senior certificate. However, often the opportunity can not be afforded due to lack of staff to support the students, or concerns with how to support the Head Start students due to unfamiliarity with USQ StudyDesk and content.

The project connects preservice teachers to local schools, by partnering them with a student studying the USQ Head Start program to support the student in a one on one situation for approximately one to two hours each week. Preservice teachers will support Head Start students with navigation of USQ content in Studydesk and provide mentorship and support throughout the course.
