Pre-service teacher placement process

The placement process will vary according to where you are located and which course you are studying as outlined in the Professional Experience Book (DOC 725 KB)

For the purposes of an education placement, a day is defined as being on site from 8am to 4pm. Any absences must be made up as a course requirement to complete the placement and ensure eligibility for QCT registration. While we endeavor to place students close to home; at times a lack of availability at sites means travel of up to 50 km to and from a placement may be required.

Before you can attend any professional experience placement you must have your current Blue Card or relevant Working with Children Check clearance and have completed all required steps to request your placement online

Refer to the Professional Experience matrix and Professional Experience calendar for your program to ensure you are aware of your scheduled placement dates and have made any required leave arrangements.

Please note:  Enrolments in EPP3100 closed on 9 November, 2018. Failure to enrol into EPP3100 by 9 November, 2018 will mean you cannot complete EPP3100 in 2019 and this will delay your program progression.

In your first semester of study prior to commencing placement you will also need to complete the Form T - Teaching Areas Form (PDF 115KB) if you are a BEDU Secondary student and submit it to USQ Support
