Casual Teacher, $43.09 - $70.86 per hour (SEA GA 2019) (inc. 20% loading)
Teachers seeking casual teaching opportunities can now apply and register their school preferences through a simple online process.
The way that we recruit our casual (relief) teachers is beginning to change.
From Term 3 2021, a number of public schools will be using the new Casual Staff Seeker, an online tool that makes it easier to send you booking requests via text message. As schools start to use this tool you will no longer need to apply directly to them, or maintain your details on individual relief lists.
Casual teachers play an important role supporting students when their teachers are on leave or a school requires additional support. Supporting schools in this way also offers you many professional and personal benefits including superannuation contributions, an additional 20% pay loading, and networking opportunities.
Casual appointments can range from three hour engagements to four week appointments at a single school or educational site.
How the new process works
Letting schools know you are interested in casual work is a simple, two-step process.
Applying to this pool can widen your opportunities for casual work. Whilst we transition to this new process, some schools will continue to engage casual staff using existing methods. Applying to this new pool does not guarantee that you will receive requests to work in your preferred schools. Eventually all public schools will use the Casual Staff Seeker to find, book and pay casual staff.
