Ever thought about South Australia? The state has plenty to offer and if you’re a good teacher SA has just announced that it is interested in hearing from you.

Educators looking for employment and a new challenge will be able to explore opportunities as more than 150 teaching positions are advertised from this week in country and metropolitan public schools across South Australia.

The ongoing positions, which commence in 2020, are an opportunity for highly skilled and motivated people who are looking 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, technology, the arts, PE and agriculture. Special education positions will also be advertised.

As with previous years, it is anticipated there will be strong interest in the positions.

Applications for these positions will close at the end of September. For more information, visit the Department for Education’s website.

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

Assistant Director People and Culture Operations, Anne Kibble said, “To be a world class education system, we need high-quality educators in our schools and preschools leading the way.

“We need expert teachers to skilfully lift student outcomes to achieve growth for every child in every class in every school.

“Positions in regional and remote communities are a unique opportunity for those wanting to progress their teaching and leadership skills and gain an understanding of the diversity within our state.

“Many of those who’ve taught in the country, are glad they took on the experience as part of their career development, which they say has been a point of difference to help them stand out for future positions.”
