Before Professional Experience

Legal requirements

All prospective Pre-Service Teachers must not have a criminal record and before being able to participate in Professional Experience, all students over the age of 18 must supply ECU with evidence of the following two current history checks:

  • Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check (NCCHC); and
  • Working with Children Check (WWCC).

ECU retains responsibility for all liaison with schools in the placement of students on Professional Experience.

Please note that the NCCHC is not the same as a State or Federal police clearance. Further information and applications are available from the Department of Education WA website.

Inherent requirements

There are some essential skills and abilities you will need to perform to meet the core learning outcomes of your course or unit. They are not something you need to get into the course, but they will be developed and assessed throughout your course. These skills and abilities are integral to your success in your career when you graduate. (See more about the inherent requirements).
