    Abstract

    This paper reflects on a model of professional experience in a program for students who have been recruited for their industry experience and expertise in food, agriculture, computing, engineering and other industries to become VET in Schools and technology teachers within a secondary school system. In terms of VET in Schools, the currency and vocational knowledge and experience these preservice teachers bring to schools can provide a valuable asset within the school curriculum. At the same time, these student teachers may struggle with other aspects of their roles as new practitioners in a very different work context from the ones to which they have been socialised and acculturated.
