Professional Experience 2/Internship is the final capstone course in your pre-service teaching program, undertaken concurrently with or after all other core courses. You complete a two day orientation before a 9-week (45 day) professional experience block in a NSW school. The placement begins with 3 days of structured observation followed by 22 days of closely supervised teaching, followed by 20 days of more independent teaching, taking one half of a teacher’s normal load. Successful completion of Professional Experience 2/Internship means you meet the AITSL standards for a graduate teacher. You will also demonstrate a strong commitment, enthusiasm and respect for the teaching profession and engagement with the broader educational community.

Note: Professional Experience 2/Internship occurs at the times specified by the School of Education. In order to arrange timely professional experience placements, you must log in to the School of Education’s online placement system and enter requested information no later than Week 8 of the previous semester.
