Over 100 ongoing teaching positions available

Thursday, June 9, 2016

Opportunities have opened up to secure a permanent teaching role, with over 100 ongoing teaching positions now available in country and metropolitan locations across South Australia. 

The positions are a great opportunity for recent graduates and teachers looking to secure full-time employment in a state government school.

For positions located in the country there are a range of incentives and entitlements to support teachers choosing to work in rural and remote areas, such as relocation and housing subsidies, financial benefits and additional salary raises.


Applications for ongoing country and category 1 and 2 metropolitan teaching positions will be open for two weeks, from Thursday 9 June through to 23 June through the DECD website 

All applicants must currently be registered or be able to register with the Teacher Registration Board of South Australia prior to applying to the position.

For more information and to apply to the positions visit the DECD Jobs page.

Quotes attributable to Sam Bradley, Executive Director of People and Culture:

These positions are ideal for teaching graduates looking to kick start their career, as they offer plenty of opportunities for professional development that will assist in building a strong foundation for future employability. 

Many teachers working in country and Aṉangu Lands schools are often presented with greater prospects for career progression and leadership roles, as well as access to financial incentives.

Community engagement in the country offers a rewarding lifestyle where there is opportunity to build strong social and professional networks that one might not make living in metropolitan areas.

I encourage all graduates and teachers to consider applying for the advertised positions, as there is nothing more rewarding than the positive contribution educators make to the lives of young people and their communities.
