Public teaching jobs offer chance to shape SA’s future

Thursday, May 31, 2018

170 teaching positions open today in country and metropolitan public schools across South Australia.

The positions, which commence in 2019, offer a fantastic opportunity for established teachers and recent graduates to earn an ongoing role as part of the statewide team that provides education to the almost 175,000 students in the state’s public system.

The Department for Education is looking for highly skilled and motivated people who are willing to work hard to make a positive difference in the lives of South Australia’s children and young people.

Jobs are offered in a wide range of subject areas and year levels, including primary and junior primary positions and secondary subjects such as mathematics, science, designer technology, the arts, PE and agriculture to name a few.

Special education positions will also be advertised.

There are a range of incentives and entitlements to support those applying to work in rural and remote schools, such as relocation and housing subsidies, financial benefits and additional allowances.


Applications for ongoing teaching positions in country, Aboriginal and category 1 and 2 public schools (those with the highest rank of educational disadvantage) will open for 3 weeks from Thursday 31 May through to Thursday 14 June. For more information and to apply, visit the Education Department’s Jobs page.

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