Welcome

Teaching experience provides the opportunity for student teachers to put into practice what they have learned at Victoria’s Faculty of Education. Teaching experience is a compulsory component of all teacher education programmes.

All student teachers must spend time observing and developing their teaching practise in a classroom or early childhood setting. Learning alongside qualified teachers allows students to see how theory and practice interlink.

The role of the Teaching Experience Office is to organise placements for student teachers in suitable centres/schools. Our staff have excellent working relationships with centres and schools both within Wellington and around New Zealand and work to ensure all students are placed in supportive educative environment for their teaching experience.

The TE Office also acts as a contact point for centres and schools on all matters relating to Teaching Experience.
