Get the most from your experience

Make sure to contact your school’s professional experience coordinator and your supervising teacher to introduce yourself and arrange a time to meet. You should also complete and hand in an application form for a network guest account (SD6) (96.6 KB).


All schools will provide an induction to the school. Please discuss a time for your site and classroom induction with your supervising teacher or school’s professional experience coordinator.

During your placement

Be proactive in identifying your own areas for improvement (reflect on the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers). Talk with your supervising teacher and professional experience coordinator about observing staff on other classes/stages or in other key roles i.e. Learning and Support Teacher (LaST), English as an additional language or dialect teacher (EAL/D teacher) in order to gain a strong understanding of how colleagues work together to improve student learning progress and achievement.
