Master of Teaching partnership schools and centres
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.
Master of Teaching
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.
Master of Teaching (Sec) Internship
Partner with us in our Internship Masters. Available for Secondary schools across all sectors, we work with you to prepare the teachers of the future. Contact our Professional Experience team for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
MGSE's placement structure ensures all teacher candidates, mentor teachers, schools and centres are supported through our clinical staff, teaching experts and professional experience team ensure the best experience for all.
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. With a focus on engagement and relationships, there are many ways schools and centres can enhance connection to the University.
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. Being a partnership school or centre also provides you with the opportunity to recruit high quality graduate teachers.
