Timetable information
If you are enrolled in any or all of these units in Winter your timetable may look a little different:

  • Responding to Individual Needs in Educaiton SEC & G
  • Sociocultural Politics of Education SEC & G
  • The different verisons of CPP3
  • Literacy Across Disciplines (UG)/Enhanced Learning in Professional Contexts G2 (Dip Ed).

There is a joint seminar for all of these units on Tuesday morning of week 1. This is NOT a clash, it is a joint class where we can explain the semester.

After week 1, RINE and SCPE are run with a joint seminar and joint tutorial in the odd weeks. Again this in NOT a clash, we are running joint classes.

After week 1, CPP3 and Literacy/ELPCG2 will run with a joint seminar and joint tutorial in the even weeks.These classes are at the same times and in the same rooms as your odd week classes.

The seminars are on Tuesday mornings in the Boiler House. The Grad Dip tutorials are in Inspire as they were in S1. The UG tutorials are on Thursday monrings in Bldg 5. CPP3 also has KLA based workshops on a Thursday afternoon.

Please do not worry if these units appear to clash, there is no actaul clash.You only need to worry about clashes with units not listed above.

Students should have completion date set as END-2012 in MyUC.

When you finish your course, if you want to teach in Australia you must register with the teacher registration/accreditation authority in that state or territory in which you wish to teach.

In the ACT that body is the ACT Teacher Quality Institute (TQI). TQI registration normally takes up to 30 days to complete. As such, it is advised that students begin the registration process before receiving their completed transcripts. TQI have stated that if the students have started the process, and the only thing TQI is waiting on is the copy of the transcript/completion letter, then it should only take a day or so after receiving those (from the student) to finish the registration.

The results from Winter Term will be released on MyUC in the first week of October; transcripts and completion letters will be available for pick up from the Student Centre at the end of this week. After this, any uncollected transcripts and letters will be posted to you. Please make sure your address on MyUC is correct!

Teacher Quality Institute Registration
From scratch, the registration process can take up to 30 days to complete. As such, students can begin the registration process before they receive their transcripts/completion letters. TQI have said that if they’ve started the process, and the only thing they’re waiting on is the copy of the transcript/completion letter, then it should only take a day or so after receiving those to complete the process.

For those students finishing in Winter Term but don’t have prac (so finishing 10th August) – the TQI have provisional registration permits to allow them to work before they’ve officially completed, however the school they’re working with has to request it for them. This information is on the TQI website.

NSW Department of Education
Students hand in release of information forms to the faculty office though out the year and at the end of each semester we send SP&G a list of those students. Then at the same time as they’re processing the completion letters and transcripts, SP&G send the Department an email with electronic copies of the student’s transcripts (the student still has to hand in a certified copy at a later date though).
