Pre-service teachers

Students are required to undertake Professional Experience placement or work integrated placements as part of the course. Units which contain field studies components are recorded as designated units.

Completion of successful Professional Experience is a requirement of, and informed by the policy of the professional teacher registration association (Queensland College of Teachers), as well as QUT's commitment to and policy surrounding real world learning (MOPP C/4.4).

Please note that paid or voluntary work at a school does not count as Professional Experience as it does not satisfy Queensland College of Teachers and QUT course requirements for 'full time, unpaid Professional Experience which is supervised by a registered teacher'.
