We are committed to placing subject specialists in classrooms that need them. However placement within a school depends on both school demand as well as what you are qualified to teach, known as your learning areas.
The learning areas you’re eligible to enrol in depend on your prior academic study and on your placement jurisdiction. During the selection process, Teach for Australia will assess your transcripts to determine your possible enrolment areas.
*In most cases, you will need to be eligible for two learning areas, but for some subjects you only need one. Please refer to the table below.
Applications for our Leadership Development Program are currently closed and will re-open on 18 February 2021. Please check back later to see learning area status.
Learning areas close as accepted candidates fill our quotas within each learning area. We encourage you to apply as soon as possible to ensure we are still accepting applications for your learning area.
