This page is for students undertaking the online Graduate Diploma of Mathematics course.
Teacher education students with Proficient Teacher Accreditation (that is those who have completed an accredited degree), who are applying for credit for the final professional experience placement in the Graduate Diploma of Mathematics should NOT enrol in the subject until their application for Credit has been finalised. Enrolment in the subject may lead to the payments of unnecessary university fees. Certain conditions must be met in order to be awarded Proficiency Credit. These are outlined in the Proficiency Credit section below.
If you do not intend to apply for Proficiency Credit: before applying for your placement, please ensure that you are enrolled in the subject, have met all mandatory requirements and followed all guidelines for organising your placement. Details about these requirements and guidelines are available here: Placement Information All Students. All documentation must be current and valid until the end of your placement.
Placement applications are processed through InPlace, the CSU professional experience placement management system. Please log in to InPlace to enter the details of your proposed placement against the required fields. Once you have submitted your placement application via InPlace, a member of the Workplace Learning Team will contact you to discuss your placement options.

We strongly encourage you upload a Curriculum Vitae (CV). By uploading your CV you are consenting to the Workplace Learning Team sharing this information with Schools for the purpose of securing a placement for you. The CV should be of the same standard you would submit to a Principal when seeking employment as a teacher (work experience, qualifications, previous professional experience, extracurricular skills, and special interests). The NSW Department of Education and Communities has some helpful guidelines for writing a CV on their website.
Note: All secondary school placements must be sourced by the Workplace Learning Team. Teacher education students are not permitted to contact schools themselves. Early placement applications will greatly improve the chances of the Workplace Learning Team securing your preferred placement, however this is not guaranteed.
Application for Session 1 placements must be submitted by Week 4 of Session 1. Application for Session 2 placements must be submitted by week 8 of Session 1.
Please note that teacher education students who are accredited as Proficient Teachers and who are seeking credit for EPT422 Professional Experience in the Graduate Diploma of Mathematics are required to fulfil the following conditions:
Teacher education students who are assessed to have met these requirements after submitting a Proficiency Credit Request Form (download here) will be awarded a Proficiency Credit (PCR) for the subject.
