Off-Campus Primary and Secondary Placement Process

All placements must be organised through the off-campus Professional Experience Office. Pre-service teachers undertaking this course are in a wide variety of geographic locations therefore the following process for organising placements is to be followed:
All placements are undertaken in consecutive days EPR701 15 days, EPR702 25 days and EPR703 25 days. Placements are generally in blocks of 5 days per week but can be requested for no less than 3 days per week (but there are no guarantees that a school will be willing to place pre-service teachers for this arrangement). For less than 5 days attendance Pre-service teachers will be required to complete 4/5 days in the final week of placement.

Examples:


Attending
July 21 to August 22 x 25 days

Organising Your Placement

Pre-service teachers must send the placement request information form allowing at least 12 weeks notice of placement dates.

  2. Ensure all details on the form are complete.
  3. Provide 3 school preferences and a list of suburb preferences, failure to nominate several school preferences may affect pre-service teacher's commencement dates.
  4. Clearly indicate how the placement is to be structured (dates and days). Pre-service teachers undertaking less than 5 days per week must indicate which days they will attend.
