Welcome from Geelong PEO
A quick read over the PEO website will ensure you are better prepared for your professional experience. It is designed as a ready reference for all the information you need to know as well as a resource to support your teaching development.
Your time in schools is precious. It is the means by which you confirm your aptitude, build your skills and develop the self-confidence required to present as a graduate teacher. Web site reference will help you make the most of your professional experience, optimise your learning and meet the likely challenges.
Pre Round Briefings identify the key elements of professional experience requirements but most significantly highlight the key expectations relevant to each particular teaching round for each year level cohort. Familiarity with the web site and attendance at every pre round briefing will give each student the best chance of making the most of every day you spend in a school/learning centre.
We encourage students to be pro-active in their preparation for professional experience and want you to feel free to contact staff members by email, phone or in person with any concerns /questions. The staff of the Professional Experience Office at Waurn Ponds enjoy positive relationships with our academic staff and our host schools and are very keen to see that all stakeholders benefit from our practicum program.
