Important Points to Note :
                      
                    
All Dip Ed, Dip PE, Dip Art Ed Year 1 (July 2013 intake) student teachers, please remember to:
                                    
- register for TP1 in the July 2014 course registration exercise.
- note that you will be posted back to your Teaching Practice 1 (TP1) school for your Teaching Practice 2 (TP2) which will take place in Feb-May 2015.
                              

All BA/BSc (Ed) Year 1 (July 2013 intake) student teachers, please remember to:
                             
- register for SE in the July 2014 course registration exercise.
- take note that you will be posted back to the same school (either Primary or Secondary depending on your teaching track) for Teaching Assistantship (TA) which will take place in July 2015 semester.  (E.g. If a BA(Ed) Primary student teacher is posted to Fuhua Primary School and Westwood Secondary School for the School Experience (SE), s/he will be posted back to Fuhua Primary School for TA.)
- note that you will get an automatic change of posting for Teaching Practice 1 (TP1) and will remain in the same school for the subsequent Teaching Practice 2 (TP2). This is an arrangement to ensure that the student teachers have some exposure to different school environments in the 4-year programme.
               
                 
All BA/BSc (Ed) Year 3 (July 2011 intake) student teachers, please remember to:
                           
- take note that in order to provide student teachers with a greater exposure to different school environments, all BA/BSc (Ed) July 2011 intake student teachers who are doing TP1 will be given a new school posting. You will not be posted to your SE/TA school for TP1*.
- register for TP1 only in the July 2014 course registration exercise.
