We provide pre-service teachers with funding when completing their professional experience in secondary science, technologies, and mathematics (STEM).

Pre-service STEM teachers completing their professional experience can receive $250 per week in the metropolitan area and up to $700 per week in some regional areas. 

Funding is only available to those who are in their final or penultimate year of study (their third or fourth year of a Bachelor of Education, or first or second year of a Master of Teaching).

Funding will vary based on the education region in which you undertake your professional experience.
