At UNC Greensboro, clinical experiences, including both early field experiences and student teaching, are a critical part of professional preparation programs. While the structure and location of field experiences vary across the many UNCG programs, they are designed and implemented in collaboration with district/agency partners. In the Office of Student Success, the SOE Placement Coordinator serves as a liaison between the university and all school districts, schools and agencies where placements are made.
The Placement Coordinator in the School of Education will secure all placements for clinical experiences. Most school districts have strict rules against students reaching out directly to any teacher or principal in their districts for placement.
If you have questions regarding an issue that may show up on your background check, contact the placement coordinator.
You will participate in a Student Teaching experience during your final semester of your senior year. In order to participate in Student Teaching, you will need to complete the Student Teaching Application during your junior year.
