Teaching Opportunities In Western Australia

Have you ever considered teaching in Australia?

The Department of Education is the biggest employer in Western Australia. The Department offers the teachers some of the highest average salaries in Australia, as well as supportive working conditions.

The Western Australia Department of Education is seeking suitably qualified secondary school teachers, particularly those teaching STEM subject matters and disciplines (i.e. Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics). Teachers require the appropriate visa to work in Australia. Please see the Skilled Occupation List to learn whether you are eligible to secure your own visa.

The Department is considering sponsorship for some specialists teaching positions in certain schools, but in most cases the Skilled Independent Visa (Subclass 189) would be required.
