Available roles

A variety of roles are available at metro and regional schools and preschools.

If you haven’t met teacher employment requirements yet, you can still work as a School Services Officer (SSO) or Early Childhood Worker (ECW) at our schools and preschools.

Contract teachers

A contract teacher has a contract with a school or preschool for a fixed period of time. A small number of contract teaching roles in regional and metro may be advertised throughout the year.

Temporary relief teachers

Temporary relief teachers receive great work flexibility and variety by filling in for absent teachers and providing extra support in schools and preschools on a casual basis.

School services officers

School services officers (SSOs) provide classroom support in our schools and preschools.

Early childhood workers

Early childhood workers (ECWs) provide curriculum classroom support in preschools. There are 3 types of ECWs – preschool, rural care and occasional care.
