This website is essential reading for all pre-service teachers enrolled in an initial teacher education program at Charles Darwin University. It sets out the professional experience placement requirements needed to successfully complete the course and gain teacher registration. It provides important information and frequently asked questions about professional experience placements in education settings.  

The success of professional experience placement is a result of collaborative efforts by academic staff, educators, the InSchool team, and you, the pre-service teacher. We hope it will be a rewarding and positive experience.
