The placement process will vary according to where you are located and which course you are studying as outlined in the Professional Experience Book (DOC 725 KB).
Students are not permitted to approach schools or centres in Queensland to negotiate placements as outlined in the Partnership Agreements included in the Professional experience reporting framework.
From Semester 2, 2019 placement communication will be distributed to students through a bulk communication process. Please refer to the Student Placement Communication flow chart (PDF 167KB) for further information.
For the purposes of an education placement a day is defined as 8 hours, e.g. being on site from 8am to 4pm. Any absences must be made up as a course requirement to complete the placement and ensure eligibility for QCT registration. While we endeavor to place students close to home; at times a lack of availability at sites means travel of up to 50 km to and from a placement may be required.
