Welcome to Teach Rural - this section of our website aims to provide information and support to pre-service teachers wishing to engage in a practicum beyond the range, and to rural communities who wish to attract them.
We envisage that in the near future this page will provide information and links to departmental teaching initiatives as well as branch offers of support to prac students.
