Register your interest in career enhancing opportunities

Current teachers, are you looking to enhance your career and explore a change of scenery? Applications for the Rural Experience Program and Premier’s Teacher Scholarships are opening soon.

The Rural Experience Program offers current casual, temporary and permanent teachers, with a minimum of two years teaching experience, the opportunity to take part in a paid short-term placement in a rural or remote NSW public school.

The placements provide a unique opportunity to gain valuable experience working in a rural setting, and will enable you to showcase and enhance your skills in a new location, while simultaneously making a difference in a rural or remote community.

In addition to your substantive salary, teachers participating in the Rural Experience Program will receive $500 on commencement of their placement and a $500 allowance per week for the duration of their placement period.

If a tree change interests you, subscribe to be notified of program updates and when applications open.

If a shorter placement is better aligned with your current circumstances, the NSW Premier’s Teacher Scholarships support current teachers to develop their own study tour to explore best practice in a chosen research area.

Teachers can complete a tour of up to five weeks in duration, visiting highly acclaimed schools and centres for teaching and learning in their field of expertise.

At the completion of the study tour, you will have a chance to share your research and insights with other educators in your local community and across the state.
