Industry Partners

We welcome industries to take part in the innovative Teaching for Tomorrow programme by providing final year preservice (student) teachers of Science, Design & Technology and Maths (STEM) with the opportunity to connect, experience and strengthen their knowledge of how STEM is applied in innovative workplaces.

Each industry partner of Teaching for Tomorrow will be invited to provide preservice teachers with:

  • a short-term experience of at least 8 hours across a period of three months, from March - June. The length of the face-to-face engagement with preservice teachers can be negotiated between the Industry and the University. Pre-service teachers will visit the industry teams of up to four. 
  • a nominated STEM staff member(s) that can discuss your company’s core business and where STEM skills are critical to your operations. Each preservice teacher will develop STEM teaching resources as a direct output from their industry experience.

The industry experience you provide will enable preservice teachers to teach STEM concepts in authentic, real-world contexts to students in schools, to profile STEM businesses, and highlight the breadth of STEM skills and careers that exist.

UniSA’s School of Education will assist the engagement and oversee the preservice teacher’s curriculum project.
