Professional experience

Professional Experience is a vital component of your Pre-Service Teacher education at ECU. The experience involves a coordinated and extensive practical program in a range of schools and centres, enabling you to put theory into practice. Under the guidance of your Mentor Teacher and University Supervisor, you will develop the knowledge and skills of a beginning teacher in real teaching environments.

Our Placements Office will guide and support you through your professional experience program, arranging and coordinating your school and centre placements.
