Live and teach in WA
Our public schools are located across eight education regions and offer endless opportunities to live and teach in Western Australia.
Western Australia (WA) is a large and diverse state from white sandy beaches, vineyards and forests in the south, tropical climate in the north to the arid red dirt of the outback. The variety of landscapes makes it the ideal location to explore and experience the relaxed outdoors Australian lifestyle. The state offers a comfortable lifestyle, great weather, world-renowned natural attractions, a progressive culinary scene and a vibrant cultural heritage. The capital city, Perth has evolved into a multicultural city with a population over 2.1 million.
WA has a world class public education and health system and provides a safe and secure environment for people of all ages and lifestyles. We aim to deliver a high quality education to all students in all learning environments. The Western Australian public school system is a major contributor to the state’s prosperity and growth and our schools use a range of strategies to successfully engage students, their families and communities. We have diverse schooling options with tailored programs to meet the specific needs and interests of students with the right supports they need to progress and achieve.
Creating culturally responsive schools is an important component of WA public education. The Aboriginal Cultural Standards Framework guides staff to incorporate culturally responsive practices and approaches when working with Aboriginal students, their families, and communities.
Teaching in regional WA is a great way to experience Western Australian culture and sense of community. Staff often socialise and adventure together, forming lifelong friendships. We encourage taking part in local activities, sports, associations, or service organisations. Getting to know your community creates a strong feeling of belonging, especially in smaller towns.
