Teach in rural, regional and remote WA
Many of our teachers have described working in a rural, regional or remote school as the highlight of their career.
They talk of the rewarding lifestyle, enhanced professional experiences and the opportunity to contribute to the wider community.
Some schools, located in large regional centres, welcome around 1000 students every day. Other schools, located in rural or remote communities, educate smaller groups of students, some in multi age classes.
- Rural schools are generally located in smaller towns in agricultural areas such as Merredin, Katanning or Dalwallinu. They may be primary schools, or district high schools catering for all students from kindergarten to Year 10.
- Regional schools include those located in WA’s larger regional centres like Karratha, Esperance or Northam. These locations have primary schools, senior high schools and education support centres.
- Our Remote Teaching Service is made up of 37 schools and school campuses in the Kimberley, Pilbara, Goldfields and Midwest regions. These remote schools may be located in Aboriginal communities or small towns. Depending on the location, and student population, there are opportunities for primary and secondary teachers.
Teachers in our public schools enjoy a range of benefits and support. Teach in one of our rural, regional or remote schools and you may also be eligible for additional support such as subsidised employee housing and transport assistance.
