Are some subject areas more in demand than others?

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!).


Do you just teach secondary students, or is it primary school too?

We currently only place our Associates in secondary schools.

What are learning areas?

Learning areas are the subject areas you are eligible to teach in based on your prior academic study.

Where will I be placed?

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.

When do applications close?

Applications for Cohort 2023 are now open!

There are limited spots available so we encourage you to get your application in as soon as possible for your best chance of securing a place. Round 1 applications will close on December 20, 2022.
