The Tara.Ed Teacher Tour
Australian trainee teachers are given the opportunity to participate in a professional teaching exchange in a rural Indian partner school. This facilitates the sharing of knowledge with Indian teachers, whilst allowing the Australian trainee teachers to develop Asia Literacy. The Tara.Ed Teacher Tour enables both Australian and Indian teachers to gain essential skills with which to shape young lives.
As well as a professional skills exchange, the trainee teachers and Indian teachers participate in a cultural exchange. Lasting 3 weeks, tours are tied to an academic program; allowing Australian pre-service teachers to develop important Asia Capabilities as well as apply for practicum credit toward the attainment of their teaching degree.
