We encourage preservice and experienced teachers to join our dynamic education teams working with children in identified Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander communities.
We seek teachers with a unique skillset, who demonstrate the expertise, enthusiasm and capacity to teach in these complex communities. Working in our diverse school communities can be challenging, but also incredibly rewarding.
We support all our teachers moving into these locations with:
- induction, in-service and post-service professional development, including a comprehensive induction program to prepare teachers for employment in Indigenous communities
- professional development about cross-cultural awareness, engaging students in learning, second language pedagogy and behaviour management
- opportunities for interaction with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities
- access to relevant teaching resources
- involvement in learning communities (discussion lists, interactive technologies)
- recognition of rural and remote service which may include cash benefits, flight allowances, and/or extra leave.
Locations of identified Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander communities

How you can apply
We carefully consider candidates and aim to recruit teachers who are best-placed to help our students thrive in all state schools.
If you are qualified but not currently employed as a teacher with us, you will first need to complete an
application for teacher employment. Our recruitment team will then contact you about suitable opportunities.
Once you’re employed as a permanent teacher, and have met the eligibility criteria, you can seek to transfer to another school location. If we cannot fill a role via our statewide talent pool, we may also advertise specific vacancies on SmartJobs—check out our
