Remote Teaching Service

Remote Teaching Service

The Remote Teaching Service is made up of a dedicated group of more than 200 teachers living and working in 37 remote communities in Western Australia.

They deliver flexible and innovative education programs to ensure students in remote areas have access to high quality learning programs.

Schools in the Remote Teaching Service are located in some of the most isolated parts of the State. They may be in community settings or small towns, and the majority of students are from local Aboriginal families. 

Teaching in a remote school offers a range of professional opportunities for teachers who are engaging and resilient. If you are flexible and like working as part of a team you have the opportunity to be part of this innovative learning community. Skills and interests in literacy, numeracy and English as an additional language/dialect (EAL/D) are highly valued.

We support our teachers by providing a range of additional allowances and benefits.

When you teach in a remote school you will be eligible to apply for Remote Teaching Service leave. Once you have completed three years continuous service you will receive 10 weeks paid leave. After four years you will receive 22 weeks paid leave (this includes the first 10 week entitlement). This leave is in addition to all other leave entitlements.

You are eligible for permanency after two years of satisfactory service. On completion of your three year contract you will be allocated a case manager to help you secure a position in a location of your choice.
