This page has all the information you need to engage in the following PE units
- PE1 – EDS210
- PE2 – EDS261
- PE3 – EDS360
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.
You will do your Professional Experience for EDS210 and EDS261 at the same school and with the same mentor teacher and class.
EDS210 Placement (Annual)
The first Professional Experience involves a two-week block placement. This is an annual placement as you will return to the same school, mentor teacher and classroom. Emphasis during the first placement is on planning, developing basic skills and knowledge as a novice teacher, and gaining an understanding of the role of the teacher.
EDS261 Placement (Annual)
For the second Professional Experience, you will have a three-week block placement in the same school as the first placement. The focus for this professional experience is on assessment practices with emphasis placed on developing teaching and learning knowledge and skills.
In the third Professional Experience, you will have a three-week block placement. It is intended to build on the knowledge, skills and experiences gained in the previous professional experience units and their placements. The focus for this professional experience is using data to inform teaching and learning.
