The Department of Education is establishing an appointment pool of eligible candidates to be placed in teaching vacancies as part of the 2020‑2021 Teach For Australia Program.
You are only eligible for this appointment pool if you have been recruited as an Associate in the 2020‑2021 Teach For Australia Program.
The Teach For Australia Program is an employment-based pathway into teaching which allows participants (known as Associates) to complete a Master of Teaching while undertaking a paid two‑year placement in a school. To be eligible for inclusion in the 2020‑2021 Teach For Australia Program you must have already completed at least a Bachelor’s degree (or be on track to successfully do so by December 2019) in any discipline except education and meet the requirements for enrolment into the Master of Teaching at the Australian Catholic University. For further information regarding the Teach For Australia Program please visit http://www.teachforaustralia.org.
This pool may be used to fill fixed-term, 2 year vacancies at Western Australian public schools eligible to participate in the 2020‑2021 Teach For Australia Program. Appointments will be made for the commencement of the 2020 academic year. All appointments will be on a full-time basis. A list of schools eligible to participate in the 2020‑2021 Program is attached below.
Applications will close on 14 December 2019. Appointments from the pool can be made until 28 February 2020. Only applicants in the pool at the time a vacancy is to be filled will be considered for placement.
Selection from the pool will be based on a number of factors, including the applicant’s eligibility to teach the subject required and their status as a Teach For Australia Associate.
Offers of employment will be conditional upon the applicant being granted Limited Registration from the Teacher Registration Board of WA.
Ongoing employment throughout the 2 year appointment will be conditional upon the applicant’s ongoing participation and satisfactory progress in the Teach For Australia Program.
Applicants appointed from this pool will be provided paid study leave equivalent to one day per week for the purpose of their participation in the Teach For Australia Program.
