Safety in Practice Requirements

Faculty of Education students, who are required to undertake professional experience placements as part of their degree, must meet the ‘capacity to practise safely’ pre placement conditions as determined by legislative, University policy and professional body requirements.

The Faculty, in accordance with the Safe to Practice Policy [PDF 124KB], assesses students’ capacity to practice safely via the Safety in Practice Compliance and Risk Assessment Procedure, which checks a student’s good character clearance, working with children registration,  and medical, physical and psychological capacity to safely undertake the mandatory functional requirements of their professional experience placement.

Safety in Practice forms are listed directly below. Please go to the Safety in Practice Agreement Form and complete the requirements within (other requirements and forms are hyperlinked).  All documentation must be completed in adherence with the timelines provided by the Professional Experience Office.
