Starting out as a casual teacher

27 March 2019

On gaining your approval to teach in NSW public schools it is likely you will explore opportunities to work as a casual teacher.

Casual teaching can be a great way to start your teaching career. It offers variety and flexibility, plus it gives you the opportunity to grow your professional network while you gain valuable teaching experience.

The NSW Department of Education has teamed up with ClassCover to connect you to hundreds of NSW public schools. You may also approach your local public schools directly with your resume to advise them that you are available for casual teaching positions.

Don’t forget to complete the department’s mandatory anaphylaxis and e-emergency care training modules before you begin.

Here’s one teacher’s perspective on the benefits of casual teaching:

‘I began my teaching journey as a casual teacher and it was a great way to gain experience in teaching multiple grades across many schools whilst remaining under the one employer. Take casual teaching seriously - it opened the door to full-time work for me and could for you too,’ says Kayla.

Facilitating a smooth transition from preschool to kindergarten is the job of many teachers, and for Kris Graham, a recipient of a NSW Premier’s Teacher Scholarship, it was an area she was very keen to explore more deeply.

Kris now enjoys the benefits that the scholarship provided her, and that in turn benefits her students. She says the best aspect was ` … being given time and funds to explore and learn about an area of passion for my career.
