Professional Experience

Placement information for current students and schools

Professional Experience placements are a required element of initial teacher education courses.

Placement assists our pre-service teachers to build strong foundations towards their chosen careers. It provides the essential links between theory and practice. We are extremely fortunate that our partnership schools provide rich experiences and embrace our pre-service teachers into their teaching and learning communities.

If you are a student please make sure you familiarise yourself with all expectations and requirements prior to your placement.

The purpose of this website is to provide information to all concerned with placement. However, please do not hesitate to contact our offices if you need further clarification or any other information.

We hope that placement is a great experience for all involved.
