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).

Alice Springs

The Alice Springs region is located in the southern part of the Northern Territory spanning from the west on the Western Australian border and to the east on the Queensland border.

The local government areas that make up the region are Alice Springs town, Central Desert Shire, MacDonnell Shire and the Yulara district.

The gateway to the region and its outlying communities is the centrally-located town of Alice Springs. Regular direct flights operate between Alice Springs and all capital cities in Australia.

The town's multi-ethnic population is around 28 000 with approximately 20 percent of Indigenous background. The town offers a wide range of modern facilities, full public services including a well-equipped hospital and entertainment and lifestyle options, including a variety of art interest groups. The climate promotes a healthy outdoor lifestyle and locals take part in a range of leisure activities.

The social profile of the region reflects the contrast between the predominance of non-Indigenous people in Alice Springs and Yulara and the predominance of Indigenous people spread across smaller desert communities outside these centres. Areas of the region outside Alice Springs town have a diversified economy which includes small pastoral leases, land management projects, horticultural activities, mining, tourism and cattle stations, although there are also areas with little or no economic activity.
