BEd Early Childhood

This page has all the information you need to engage in the following PE units

  • PE1 – EDE220
  • PE2 – EDE360
  • PE3 – EDE310

Please note, the Internship unit is located separately here, as it has different requirements to PE 1, 2 and 3.

Placements are undertaken on a full-time basis for the number of days shown in a continuous block and students need to plan carefully to ensure they are able to meet this commitment. The total number of days of professional experience in the course will satisfy all states’ requirements for teacher registration.

What is Professional Experience?
