This research examines the various factors that play a role in the success of interstate university-school partnerships for professional experience in Education. Given the growing number of external students in South Australia, it is an imperative to understand the factors that ensure: the resilience and retention of external pre-service teachers; the resilience of mentor teachers and schools to provide adequate support, and; the resilience of the university to provide the necessary placement and professional learning support. This research will help to develop a framework for building and sustaining resilient interstate professional experience partnerships for universities, university students, and partnering schools.
