Professional Experience Contact
The Professional Experience Office establishes relationships with schools and early childhood settings, inviting them to participate in the Professional Experience Program and host Teacher Education Students. Placements are essential for Teacher Education Students’ professional and skill development.
Teacher Education Students do not find their own placements. The Professional Experience Office contacts prior-to-school and school settings. Teacher Education Students are allocated schools and early childhood setting placements according to availability. The office is also responsible for arranging University-appointed Tertiary Supervisors to support Teacher Education Students in their Professional Experience.
Staff at the Professional Experience Office also manage mandatory checks: the Working with Children Check, anaphylaxis certificates and child protection certificates. All paperwork, including badges, is managed through the office. Log onto i-learn for more information.
The Professional Experience Office, in Building X5B, Level 3 Room 348, is open weekdays from 8.30am to 4.30pm.
