What is professional practice?

Professional practice is where a student is required to extend knowledge and skills within a practical environment. It is often required to be undertaken as a part of their university studies.

For example, an Occupational Therapy or Physiotherapy student will be required as part of their degree to go out into their field, either at a hospital or clinic and train under supervision to gain the experience and skills required in a practical environment.

Similarly, Education students are required to undertake professional practice teaching in schools and whilst being mentored by a senior teacher, will be guided in teaching and behavioural management strategies.

As a current Curtin student, your course coordinator or relevant teaching administration will provide you with further information about professional practice.
