Prac Requirement

You will notice enrolment in all professional experience (prac) courses is blocked in mySI-net. Permission to enrol in your professional experience course will only be granted once a manual check that you meet all requirements is completed. This is not an automated process. Each student will be notified by email when permission to enrol is cleared.

Students are required to complete a registration form through InPlace and hold a valid blue card through the School of Education before permission can be given to enrol in any prac course. An email is sent to students several months before the practicum date, requesting for the completion of the registration form. Students who are late to complete the registration may not be given permission to enrol.
