Monash Pre-service Teacher Partnership            

This Monday, a large group of 3rd Year pre-service teachers will commence a 10-day distributed day teaching placement. Each pre-service teacher will be mentored by one of our amazing teachers, so students can expect to have the opportunity of working with some new faces in classes from next week. 

 

By having a partnership with Monash University, we exclusively host their pre-service teacher placements, ensuring our teaching staff do not get bombarded by requests from universities all year around. The partnership also allows pre-service teachers to build their skills, their rapport with the school community and return to the College to complete further placements, and if the opportunity arises, apply for a job at the College. A great example is Ms Divinna Arasu, who undertook a 3rd-year placement in 2018, 4th-year placement in 2019 and successfully obtained a Maths/Science teaching position at the school for 2020.

 

If you have any questions in regards to pre-service teacher placements, and/or our partnership with Monash University at Clayton, please let me know.
