Classmates is an initiative designed to prepare pre-service teachers for work in demanding, hard-to-staff schools. It is being trialled for the first time this year, as an option within the Bachelor of Teaching (Secondary) at the University of Western Sydney (UWS). A collaboration between UWS and the New South Wales Department of Education and Training, South Western Sydney region, Classmates involves intensive exposure to classroom teaching and school practices in the early stages of pre-service teacher education.
