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.
Essential information all ECU Pre-Service Teachers should read before their professional experience.
Includes information about the legal requirements required prior to students going on Professional Experience placements: how to apply for the Working With Children Check (WWCC) and the Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check (NCCHC).
