In 2004 the Australian Government Department of Education, Science and Training funded the Rural Education Forum Australia to map the range of pre-service country teaching programs currently available in Australian teacher education courses, with specific reference to professional experience and practicum placement. This work took place through the Pre-Service Country Teaching Mapping Project. The study involved research into current placement programs, a literature review and interviews with officers in government and non-government school systems and sectors. This week Curriculum Leadership presents a summary of its findings.
