Teaching opportunities in remote Central Australia

The Northern Territory Government is looking for talented and committed qualified teachers who are seeking a rewarding challenge in a unique environment.

As a teacher in a remote Indigenous community of Central Australia, you will have the opportunity to develop your career through a unique desert teaching experience like no other. You will support young Territorians to reach their potential and help build brighter futures.

Teachers are required for schools in Indigenous communities which may cater early childhood, primary and secondary students (depending on the school/location).

Teaching in the Territory

Getting the right people in the right schools is vital for achieving successful outcomes for our students. If you believe you have the passion and commitment to deliver quality education then we want to hear from you - we will find you the right position in the right school.

The Northern Territory is a diverse place with students from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. Over 40% of our 150 schools are in a remote or very remote location.

Teaching remote is a different teaching experience. It requires committed and highly skilled teachers with specific attributes. The Remote Teaching Service was established to support teachers in recognition of the challenges and rewards that brilliant teachers can gain from working in remote Indigenous schools.

The Department of Education and Training can offer you the opportunities, training and support you need to build a rewarding and successful teaching career.

For more information call +61 8 8999 3501 or email teacherrecruitment.det@nt.gov.au.


Once your application is received, we will contact you about opportunities available and how your application will be progressed.
