Bus to ADFA Open Day
Career Choice: Posted 5-8-15 Deadline - No Deadline
The ADFA Open Day is only a few short weeks away, and this is for students who are interested in attending ADFA to go to the ADFA Open Day being held at the ADFA Campus in Canberra. This is a fantastic opportunity to experience the campus, see some military displays, and get a feel for life at ADFA. The ADFA Open Day event runs from 9.00am – 4.00pm on Saturday, 29 August 2015. DFR are running buses from Newcastle DFRC (Hunter Street, Newcastle) to ADFA (Canberra), travelling down and back in 1 day. The buses will leave at 5.00am sharp and will expect to return approximately 9.00pm that evening. The bus can stop at Ourimbah at 6.00am for those who are from the Central Coast region (please advise me if you require this pick up location). Basic snacks will be provided on the bus, and a rest stop will be made on the journey down. Students are more than welcome to attend the Open Day and make their own travel arrangements also. Students can either travel on the bus to the event by themselves (if under 18 written parental approval is required) or students may bring one (1) parent or guardian to accompany them on the tour. There is no cost to the student for this tour, although it’s a good idea to keep a small amount of cash to purchase snacks, lunch and beverages throughout the tour. Basic snacks and water will be provided for the bus trip. It’s advisable to wear warm clothes, or layer where appropriate. Please note that places are strictly limited. Also, places on the tour will be awarded on a first come first served basis. Bookings for the tour are required by COB 12 August 2015. I have some more tour information and consent forms that are required to be returned prior to confirmation of a place on the tour. Please send through an initial expression of interest to attend via return email (including name, phone, and parent/guardian name if attending), then return the signed consent form, and terms and conditions to confirm the booking (can be sent via post or email).

Secondary teaching at UNSW - new requirements
Career Choice: Posted 2-8-15 Deadline - No Deadline
I received this from UNSW: For secondary education entry, the 3 Band 5’s including English is only an assumed knowledge expectation for our dual UG degrees. It will not be a restricted entry requirement. Because we offer only dual degrees, enrolled students will still be able to satisfy the accreditation requirement by satisfactorily completing a full year of discipline area studies. Alternatively, students who do not meet the above criteria can complete a discipline-only UG degree followed by a Master of Teaching (if their academic performance allows for PG entry).
It should be noted that all students (even those with the Band 5s) will now also have to pass the compulsory state-wide LANTITE test in their second year to prove their Literacy and Numeracy competency.
If they are unable to pass that test, they will be asked to transfer out of Education into their discipline degree only (e.g. BArts, BScience etc.)
