Our partnership model

The Melbourne Graduate School of Education (MGSE) is a world leader in teaching and education. MGSE is dedicated to collaborating with schools in our community and beyond, to stimulate learning and enrich the potential of students and future educators.

MGSE partners with many schools and centres throughout Victoria and Australia as we work towards building a resilient, equitable and sustainable future in our education systems.

We prepare the teachers of the future through our unique Master of Teaching program, which uses a clinical approach connecting university theory, professional knowledge and classroom experience. This can only be achieved through a partnership between the MGSE, government, Catholic, and independent schools across the secondary and primary sectors; early learning centres in the early childhood sector; and the institutes that govern each organisation.

Considering becoming a partnership school or centre?

Any school or centre can partner with MGSE and work with us towards our goals for the future of education in Australia. The key to our partnerships is the practical experience our teacher candidates experience. As graduates, our teacher candidates already have had rich life and career experiences, making them valuable additions to your team. Placements are an important part of developing our future educators and MGSE’s placement structure is the most supportive in Victoria, with a wealth of staff supporting our candidates and schools and early childhood centres to ensure the best experience.

Being a partnership school or centre also provides you with the opportunity to recruit high quality graduate teachers. As teacher candidates are placed in your school or centre for two days a week for an extended period, you are able to assess whether they would make a valuable addition to your teaching team.

How do we work with schools and centres?

We work closely with all of our partner schools and early childhood settings to support placement opportunities, the professional development of teachers and leadership teams in our education systems to work towards the best outcomes for students and schools.

Our partnership model is the most supportive in Victoria for both students and mentors alike, and there can be many benefits for your school community through having a close relationship with us.
