Professional Experience Placements


The Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Armidale are committed to providing opportunities for aspiring teachers to gain experience in rural and remote areas through professional experience placements. 

We encourage all pre-service teachers to speak with their course coordinator and request a placement at a Catholic School in the Diocese of Armidale. A map of all schools in the Diocese of Armidale is pictured below. 

Universities are welcome to contact our schools directly to discuss the school’s availability and the requirements of each placement. Contact details for each of our schools can be found by clicking here.
