Professional and Community Engagement

Professional and Community Engagement (PCE) programs are a critical component of the Education programs at ACU. We regularly consult and collaborate with schools, regulatory bodies and key stakeholders to incorporate feedback into the programs. This ensures that our placements prepare students to be ready for the contemporary workplace.

We encourage our pre-service teachers to participate in professional experience programs based in rural and remote locations. This offers students exposure to the experience of teaching in diverse settings – often those with comparatively different cultural, educational and linguistic characteristics.

ACU also offers a wide range of scholarships to help students undertake placements in remote, rural and international settings.

Some of the Professional Experience and Community Engagement opportunities offered to ACU students:

Teach and Learn in Vanuatu
