Campaign for paid pre-service teacher placements  

Pre-service teachers in Victoria are required to complete up to 80 days of unpaid professional placement. This makes it really difficult cover rent, food, transport, and other living expenses. 

We are calling on the Victorian government to provide paid placements for all pre-service teachers, to support the next generation of teachers and create a sustainable future for public education.
