2. Professional Experience Placement Guidelines and Final Reports

2.1 Professional Experience Placement Guidelines

  • The expectations of each program vary for each year and placement. These guidelines provide details of pre-service teacher activity required during the Professional Experience placement scheduled and align these expectations with the Australian Professional Standards for Graduate Teachers.
  • Students print copies of the relevant guideline for their course and take it with them to the school on the first day of placement. Please provide a copy of the guideline to the supervising teacher.

2.2 Final reports

  • The Final Report is completed by the supervising teacher and provides feedback to students on their professional experience placement. This final report is mapped to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APSTs), in line with what students are expected to know and do at the conclusion of each specified professional experience placement.
  • Please note: students enrolled in EDU4100 or EDM8100 will need to complete the QPERF final report in consultation with their Supervising Teacher/s. Once the QPERF has been completed and signed the student will need to upload a copy to their placement on InPlace.

2.3 Professional Experience Reports

  • Starting Trimester 2 2024, UniSQ has introduced the Professional Experience Reports. These reports will now encompass student SMART goals, interim report and final report.
  • Students will be able to access a copy of the Professional Experience Report via InPlace once it is completed.
  • Please note: EDU4100, EDM8100, EDU0999 and EDU8336 placement courses will not move to this new process until Trimester 3 2024.
