Education placements - professional experience
Professional experience gives preservice educators the opportunity to put theory into practice.
To provide you with the most relevant and valuable placement experiences, the Professional Experience Office sources a variety of placements, complementary to your field of specialisation.
In Initial Teacher Education (ITE) programs, professional experience is a required component and essential for teacher registration with the Queensland College of Teachers (QCT). Our Early Childhood specialisations are accredited with the Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA).
