Career progression

Career progression

As your career progresses there is a range of professional learning to support your development and aspirations.

We have a strong focus on professional learning and development and encourage our staff to participate in learning that is responsive to the diverse requirements of schools, regions, professional support networks and learning communities.

One of the benefits of starting your teaching career in a public school is that you’ll be supported to transition from university and build your teaching skills, effectiveness and confidence.   

We coordinate a Graduate Teacher Professional Learning Program and In-class Coaching Program that have been specifically designed to meet your needs as an early career teacher.


We offer many opportunities to teachers with leadership skills and aspirations.

  • Level 3 Classroom Teacher - this program recognises teachers as exemplary classroom practitioners
  • School leadership professional development programs

In addition to these opportunities, teaching in rural, regional and remote schools can offer a broader range of professional experiences which may lead to the potential to advance your career and become a school leader.
