Document 5 - Professional experience Data exchange guidelines

High-quality professional experience programs need to be well-resourced, systematic, well-coordinated and cognisant of general sector/school priorities and teacher demand in particular subjects/teaching areas, geographic areas and specialist categories.

Initial teacher education providers, schools and schooling systems acknowledge a commitment to the development of teacher education students’ knowledge and skills, through the provision of high-quality mentoring and support, and to staff professional learning to better support professional experience supervision.

These guidelines are elaborations of ,and a complement to, Program Standard 5 of the Accreditation of Initial Teacher Education Programs in Australia: Standards and Procedures – April 2011.

Data-sharing protocols as described in related memoranda of understanding, agreements or arrangements should include:

  1. an undertaking by the provider to supply specific details of placements to the school or schooling system and to BOSTES annually. These details will include:

    1. the total annual number of placements

    2. a list of the schools where teacher education students have been placed and details of the number of placements in each school

    3. a description of the type, stage and duration of each placement detailing teaching area and stage of progress through the course for each teacher education student

  2. an undertaking by the school or schooling system to forecast planning for placements on a rolling annual five-year basis with details of placements being confirmed in advance on an agreed calendar

  3. an undertaking by schools or schooling systems to base forecasted placements in the context of school and sector priorities and teacher demand in particular subjects/teaching areas, geographic areas and specialist categories

  4. an undertaking by schools or schooling systems to give priority to teacher education students in BOSTES-approved programs governed by professional experience agreements or arrangements.
