Interested in undertaking an interstate placement?
Students who have permission to undertake professional experience outside of New South Wales will need to meet that state's child protection requirements. Students should contact the Department of Education within the state they are seeking to undertake placement in to confirm mandatory requirements for preservice teacher placements.
Mandatory documentation must be shown to the placement sites supervisor and a copy emailed to the Professional Experience Unit at least eight weeks prior to commencing the professional experience.
When considering an interstate placement, please be aware that interstate school term dates and some independent and Catholic schools school term dates differ to NSW school term dates.
