Supporting the School of Education means supporting the next generation, your future employees, in getting the best education and development possible.

Your contributions to the University enrich our students' experience and learning during their time at university and beyond.

Strategic partnerships

Establishing a partnership with the School of Education provides invaluable opportunities. A significant part of our work is supporting quality professional experience, focusing on strengthening links with schools. We engage with our partners in a variety of ways to help them achieve their goals and objectives; such as think tanks and member networks, having a stake in one another's agendas, and working cooperatively to advance mutual interests.

Host a student teacher

Practical experience in schools is vital for developing excellent teachers. As part of our curriculum, we have integrated practical experience placements in each year to develop practical teaching skills as early as possible. We are always actively seeking new affiliations with high schools in both metropolitan and country schools with the aim of growing long-lasting partnerships. We encourage you to reach out and engage with the School of Education to discuss your partnership opportunity.

May I congratulate you and the University on the quality of student teachers that you sent us. They are so enthusiastic, cheerful and professional - a breath of fresh air. They will bring credit to themselves and the teaching profession. We are actually sorry to see them go; the time just flew.Anton Hawdio, John Pirie Secondary School
