State law in Queensland (Australia) requires that all adults working/undertaking professional experience/researching with children under the age of 18, in the state of Queensland must hold a valid Blue Card http://www.bluecard.qld.gov.au/volunteers/doineedabluecard.html OR Exemption Card http://www.bluecard.qld.gov.au/faqs/exemption-card-faqs.html
Provided a blue card renewal application has been submitted at least 30 days before expiry of the current card, the blue card will remain active while the renewal application is processed (details available at https://bluecard.qld.gov.au/volunteers/whendoineedtoapply.html).
Blue Card Services cannot process a form dated more than 16 weeks prior to lodgement. In addition, a representative of USQ or a Justice of the Peace, must sight the applicant’s identification documents and check the information on the form, before signing and dating the USQ declaration (refer to https://www.usq.edu.au/current-students/assessment/education-placements/blue-card).
Where a student is denied approval for a blue card, enrolment in any initial teacher education program will be withdrawn (refer to https://www.bluecard.qld.gov.au/disqualification.html).
If undertaking Professional Experience outside of Queensland, students are advised to check the Working with Children requirements of the state within which Professional Experience will be undertaken (refer to https://www.usq.edu.au/current-students/assessment/education-placements/working-with-children).
The coursework focuses upon the implementation of a data driven instruction cycle through the Graduate Teacher Performance Assessment (GTPA). The course requires pre-service teachers to gather evidence of the teacher they are becoming and evaluate the impact this has upon their learners as well as justifying their repertoire of teaching practices.

BEED program, the placement is in a school setting (in the nominated primary curriculum specialisation area) from Prep to Year 3 with preservice teachers observing at least one lesson in Yr 4 - Yr 6) for exposure to upper primary.
