Career fairs


Talk face-to-face with state school leaders and recruiters from across Queensland about employment opportunities at the 2 career fairs we host each year.

The Teach Rural Career Fair is often held early in the year, followed by the Teach Queensland Career Fair in the second half of the year.

Our next career fair

Unfortunately we have postponed the Teach Rural Career Fair scheduled to occur on 6 May due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
