Applying for a teaching job
The recruitment process is different depending on what type of job you are applying for – ongoing, temporary or temporary relief teaching.
To apply for a teaching job you need to:
- register on the employable teacher register (ETR)
- build your applicant profile
- apply for advertised teaching jobs on Edujobs.
These are explained below.
The ETR is for teachers wanting to work for our department. The ETR lets the department know you’re looking for ongoing, temporary or temporary relief teaching.
By registering as an ‘employable teacher’ school and preschool leaders can see you are available for work and may contact you with a teaching job! The ETR is where you upload documents to show you meet the employment requirements for teachers in South Australia.
You’ll need to attach an applicant profile to each ongoing teaching job you apply for. Temporary and temporary relief teaching jobs don’t usually require a profile.
The applicant profile is your opportunity to share your teaching philosophy, reflect on your experiences and tell us more about you.
With about 900 schools and preschools across the department it’s a great place to start looking for your first job. You’ll see in the job title if a position is ongoing or temporary.
Edujobs is our online job application site, you can look at and apply for all advertised teacher vacancies across the department.
