An integral part of your learning in the Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood) are Professional Experience placements - putting into active practice the theory and knowledge you have been studying throughout your degree.
As a student you will participate in a minimum of 90 days (18 weeks) of full-time Professional Experience. Placements are usually scheduled as continuous ‘blocks’ of time ranging from 10 to 35 days, and occur in a variety of educational settings.
Placements are designed to enable our students to become familiar with early childhood education learners and environments. Your placement will involve active observation, interaction, participation and engagement in a range of age-appropriate activities. For Early Childhood placements, students participate in Birth through to Grade 2 environments.
Our graduates work in childcare and early learning centres, and in after-school care from birth through to age 8 throughout Australia and overseas.
