Temporary relief teacher (TRT) cluster schemes

Temporary relief teacher (TRT) cluster schemes manage TRT bookings for a number of schools and preschools in a geographical area. To work as a TRT you must have an approved authority to teach letter.

The benefits of registering with a TRT cluster scheme include:

  • the flexibility of relief teaching in a variety of schools and preschools on a casual basis
  • not having to visit individual preschools and schools to register for TRT work.

Not all schools and preschools are part of a scheme so you will need to register with them separately.

Before you register with a scheme

To be eligible for temporary relief teaching employment you must:

  1. register on the employable teacher register (ETR)
  2. meet the minimum requirements
  3. have your authority to teach letter.

You can't start work until you have received your authority to teach letter.

Registering with a scheme

Each scheme has its own registration process but you will need to provide a copy of your current authority to teach letter to each scheme before you can work.
