Thank you for the placements

The School of Education extends sincere thanks and recognition to the early education and care centres, preschools, primary and secondary schools that offered placements for our students.

Our partner centres, preschools and schools play a critical role in preparing the next generation of educators and our students truly benefit from your generosity and professionalism.
