Yes! Australia suffers from the greatest shortage of teachers in areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics—with maths and physics the most in-demand teaching subjects in schools. If you are qualified to teach a humanities subject, there is less demand. If you have humanities learning areas, we strongly recommend you speak to our Recruitment team about your regional flexibility and potentially upskilling (which is easier than you think!).
We currently only place our Associates in secondary schools.
Learning areas are the subject areas you are eligible to teach in based on your prior academic study.
We place Associates exclusively in schools serving low socioeconomic communities, working in the regions and communities that need the most support. We currently operate in Victoria, Western Australia, Tasmania, the Northern Territory and South Australia. During the application process, you can preference by state and/or metropolitan, regional and/or remote locations – but the more flexible you are, the more likely we will be able to successfully find a placement.
Applications for Cohort 2021 are now closed. Express your interest to be notified about applications for future cohorts.
The form will ask you for basic details so we can check your eligibility for the program and then direct your query to a recruiter in your region.
If you’re eligible, we’ll be in touch within one business day.
