Identifying models of best practice for partnerships around professional experience

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    A literature review has been undertaken to identify the features of partnerships that support pre-service teachers to engage in conversations about education theory and teaching practice. This study identified four features of partnership activity that need to be in place to create effective professional experience placements for pre-service teachers. These are:
    • partnership alignment of values and vision;
    • partnership shared goals and objects;
    • partnership operational processes and procedures, and
    • actions to minimize barriers.

    It is recommended that a partnership audit tool be developed and evaluated for assessment of university-school partnerships for professional experience in ITE.
