If you want to be considered for casual and/or temporary roles, let us know by ticking these options on your

Temporary and casual teaching opportunities are a great way to build your experience in different teaching environments.
Temporary or contract teachers generally work for periods of at least 5 days in a full or part-time capacity.
Casual teachers, also referred to as relief, supply or replacement teachers, can be engaged for a minimum of 2 hours and a maximum of 5 hours per day, usually during the absence of a teacher.
TRACER is the team within the department who help teachers gain casual and temporary employment in Queensland state schools.
By indicating a preference for teaching in a casual and/or temporary capacity on your application for teacher employment, you'll automatically be activated in the
MyHR Recruitment TRACER system and allocated a username and password for your account.
Schools and the TRACER team use the information provided in your application to shortlist the most suitable teachers for each vacancy.
These shortlists are based on three key criteria:
- teaching capabilities
- location preferences
- teacher availability.
The more locations you list, the more chances you have to secure an employment opportunity.
Maximise your chances of being identified for suitable teaching opportunities by keeping your details up to date.
