Casual relief teaching
Casual relief teachers play an important role in schools, teaching students when their regular teacher is unavailable.
Public schools are open for students to attend classes. Schools will need to source and appoint relief staff as they regularly do throughout the school year.
Casual relief teaching refers to casual teaching work in a public school for less than 20 consecutive days. Individual schools are responsible for the employment of relief teachers as and when required.
If you are interested in relief teaching, please read the information below and submit your online expression of interest.
Consider where you would like to work. You can find out more about individual schools by visiting Schools Online.
Complete our online expression of interest form. You will be asked information about your eligibility to work as a relief teacher and where you would like to work.
If you don’t already have a Working With Children Check (Western Australian) card you must apply within five days of starting relief teaching.
The school will submit a commencement form and generate your employee identification number (known as your E number or ID) when you start work.
