Teaching

For size, flexibility of choice and range of career development opportunities, the NSW Department of Education is the employer of choice for teachers.

We are the largest education provider in Australia, delivering education services to more than 780,000 students from Kindergarten to Year 12.

We have more than 2,200 schools throughout the state, ranging from small one-teacher country schools to large metropolitan high schools. There are selective schools for academically gifted students, and other specialist schools such as agriculture, technology, performing arts and sports high schools. We also have multi-campus colleges, environmental education centres, distance education centres and schools for children with special needs.
