Professional Experience is integral to each of the secondary-school teacher-education degrees offered by The University of Sydney School of Education and Social Work (SSESW). In-school placements commence in in Year 3 of the five-year combined BEd, BA and BEd, BSc bachelor's degrees; Year 1 of the four-year Health and Physical Education bachelor's degree; and Year 1 of the two-year Master of Education.

The Office of Professional Experiences in Teacher Education (OPE) builds partnerships with schools that offer Professional Experience placements. One of the major advantages of becoming a placement school is that the Office of Professional Learning (OPL) within SSESW offers free enrolment for school-based professional experience coordinators in its NESA-accredited workshop. Cost-recovery professional learning focused on mentoring is also available in the form of Mentoring
Modules 1 & 2. These modules articulate with the Master of Education degree (for further information contact Nina Goodwin).
