This subject investigates principles, practices and policies underpinning educational transitions, with particular focus on the transitions made by children and families as they commence attendance in educational settings outside the home. Transitions are recognised as times of educational and social change for all involved: children, families, educators, other professionals and communities. Transitions are also points at which support and engagement are established and renegotiated, providing opportunities for relationship building and intervention. Students will consider a range of issuessocial, cultural and educationalthat impact on transition; explore the perspectives of all involved in transitions; and examine their own role in promoting positive transitions.
