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 Education programs, we view professional experience as a vital component of all our undergraduate programs and some postgraduate programs. Professional experience is a requirement for teacher registration with the Queensland College of Teachers (QCT). Our Early Childhood specialisations are accredited with the Queensland Office of Early Childhood Education and Care.
