PublishingPageContent

Eligible preservice teachers undertaking a professional experience placement during semester 1, 2023, you could receive a one-off grant of up to $5,000 to assist with organising placement-related travel expenses1.

The minimum consecutive 15-day placement must be undertaken in a Queensland state school that is at least 2 hours travel (each way) from your home to the state school, has a transfer rating of 4–7 (PDF, 1.4MB)2 and is located within one of our priority regions:​

The grant is a great opportunity for you to experience teaching, living and exploring the local community and surrounds, and to see if the personal and professional benefits​ of teaching and living in a regional community is the right fit for you.​​

​How to apply

For placements in TR4–TR7 state schools, between 23 January to 23 June 2023​, apply via the Smart jobs website.

If your placement is in a Queensland state school that has a transfer rating of TR2–TR3 within the priority regions listed above, you should apply for the Regional Professional Experience Grant​.

Applications for the semester 1, 2023 grant will close 2 June 2023 or when the allocation for the semester is depleted.

Applications will not progress unless a complete application is provided via the Smart jobs website, which includes written confirmation of the placement.
