This is the second of four units that explores components of health education within an Australian school context. This unit provides students with the opportunity to undertake teaching and learning experiences structured to prepare them for forthcoming school experience sessions particularly in terms of understanding and planning for the nature, scope, content and experiences appropriate for health education for children in schools at levels K-10.

In this unit students will develop teaching expertise needed to design and administer effective health education lessons. This will include planning units of work (including lessons plans) relevant to the health-related focus areas of the Australian HPE Curriculum and delivering innovative health education units to primary school students through work-integrated learning (WIL).
