Tasmania is our newest placement location, where 53 Associates have been placed since 2017. This year, 20 Associates were placed in Tasmania, teaching across 11 schools – all in regional areas.
As the most recent addition as a placement state, Tasmania offers a new and exciting opportunity for Associates to move down south to teach and experience a completely different adventure.
Associates can explore the famous rugged mountains, beaches and walking tracks that Tasmania has on offer. There are also great communities right across Tasmania, from the people you work with through to local sporting clubs.
Nothing is far too far in Tasmania, where you can live in a town that is just an hour away form both Launceston in the north and Hobart in the south.
Most Associates placed in Tasmania live in small towns on the north coast. The communities are close and supportive, the sort of place where if you have a broken oven, just pop over to use the neighbour’s. Associates have found everyone is always thankful and willing to lend a hand, and almost always up for a chat.
Avid footy fans in particular will get a kick (excuse the pun) out of Tassie, where football is an important interest in some circles.
