Professional experience

Professional experience is a vital component of your Pre-service Teacher education at ECU. The experience provides students with the opportunity to develop and critically reflect on their skills, particularly with the support and guidance of your Mentor Teacher and University Supervisor. During your professional experience, you are able to advance your teaching skills and professional development whilst participating in the professional community and creating valuable networks.
