Attraction and Retention Initiative for remote and regional schools

Attraction and Retention Initiative for remote and regional schools

Attraction and Retention Initiative is a major investment designed to attract and retain teachers and administrators to remote and regional schools.

Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery has announced a $12.4 million investment in the initiative to provide incentives to teachers and school administrators in 48 remote and regional public schools where demand for staff is the greatest for 2023.

The new Attraction and Retention Initiative is being introduced for the 2023 school year only to attract and retain quality teachers and school administrators at 48 remote and regional public schools. The payment will be offered to both new and existing teachers and school administrators.  It also applies to school administrators as the expectation is that they will teach of pick up a teaching load.

Payments will vary from $5,000 to $17,000, depending on location. A percentage will be paid upon commencement (25%) and the remainder (75%) paid to those staff who remain at the school until the end of the 2023 school year.

The Attraction and Retention Initiative (ARI) is only payable for the 2023 school year.
