Practicum teaching placements

All students are enrolled into a practicum course each semester where they are placed alongside an associate teacher in a primary or intermediate school. These practicum placements are connected to the Teaching Council - Standards for the Teaching Profession and provide students with a coherent pathway of study which grows in complexity and length overtime. This ensures students become effective, responsive and reflective teachers.

As part of these placements students will work with children between 5-12 years of age across a diverse range of schools.
