Professional Experience

Mandatory Student Requirements - Clearances

Prior to placement in any school for professional experience, Pre-Service Teachers are required to complete and submit copies of students' National Police History Check (from the Education Department NOT the Police Station) and a Working with Children Clearance.  Please upload a copy of your NPHC and WWCC via the 'Documents' link on SONIA - Online Student Placement Management System.
