Teaching opens doors

Is it time to consider career options post-high school? How about teaching?

Teaching is a rewarding career that opens up a number of different pathways. When studying teaching, students can be supported financially and experience what teaching is like firsthand while completing practicum placements.

Teachers can explore a range of different subject areas and work in a number of locations across the state, including schools in rural and remote NSW that offer additional benefits and incentives. They also benefit from a competitive graduate salary and mentoring and support from experienced colleagues.

On the NSW Education website you can explore the benefits of a teaching career, use our how-to guide to become a teacher or watch stories of current teachers in NSW public schools. 

You can also find additional information about scholarship programs which provide students with financial support while studying and a full-time permanent teaching position on graduation.

Teaching is not only an option for school leavers, but can also open doors for university students, career changers and teachers from other systems or states. Find out how teaching can open doors for you
