UC Affiliated Schools

The Affiliated Schools Program is a collaborative partnership between the University and the ACT Government and a key initiative under the Territory’s Future of Education Strategy. The aim of the Program is to enhance students’ learning and schooling outcomes through professional learning for pre-service and in-service teachers, and research in schools.

Six elements comprise the Program:

  1. professional experience placements;
  2. school-based teacher education clinics;
  3. professional learning;
  4. scholarships for masters-level study;
  5. school-based coordinators in full program affiliated schools, and;
  6. research programs.

These elements have been informed by collaborations between UC and the ACT Education Directorate, and by international best practice in university and school partnerships.
