Suitability assessments

Teacher suitability assessment ranking

Pre-service teachers (graduates) and general teacher applicants may be invited to attend a suitability assessment interview at a school or regional human resources office as part of the application process.

If you are invited to participate in a suitability interview you will be required to submit a professional folio for consideration by the panel. The folio must be sent to the panel chair at least one week prior to the interview.

A list of required documents to be included in your folio can be found on the Professional Folio Cover Page depending on whether you are a graduate or general teacher applicant.

The folio templates are:

You are also required to submit a personal statement as part of your folio. This statement (500 words maximum in paragraph or dot point format) is an opportunity to highlight the skills, knowledge, experience and attributes you can offer as a potential employee.

If you undertake a suitability assessment interview and do not receive written notification shortly after completing, you have been assessed as eligible for employment.

Any questions about this process should be directed to your relevant regional HR team.
