Placement Structure:
The three professional experience units consist of both academic and practicum components. Both components of each unit have to be passed before preservice teachers can proceed to the next professional experience unit. Preservice teachers across the three strands of early childhood, primary and secondary teaching will all do the academic components of the three professional experience units together - EPR701, EPR702 and EPR703. Preservice teachers will be placed in a school or early childhood setting relevant to their particular strand.

  • Single Strand - students will complete a total of 60 days of practicum across the 3 professional experience units
  • Dual Strand - Primary and Secondary or Secondary and Primary students will complete both EPR701 (10 days) and EPR702 (25 days) in their first strand and EPR703 (25 days) in their second strand.
  • Students will also be required to complete additional days should they enrol in the Internship, Applied Learning, Research or Leadership strands, in the Trimester following the EPR703 placement.
