Your adventure starts here

The Rural Experience Program is an opportunity for you to get a short term experience in a rural or remote school for 1 – 4 terms.

Placements are based on needs identified by the principal of the host rural experience school. These placements will be advertised as jobs in April and could begin as early as July 2018 and up to Term 4 2019. You will need to match your skills and interests against placements on offer.

If successful, your role is funded by the Rural and Remote Education initiative and is in addition to the normal establishment in the host rural school. An incentive allowance of $500 per week is offered to compensate you for additional expenses incurred in a short-term placement.

For more information see the Rural Experience Program on the department's website.
