What is a DRT?  A DRT is employed by a school (Base School) and you are available to work across nominated schools within a region (Host Schools) to cover unexpected short term absences.

The DRT is a flexible position that can change day to day to meet the needs of the individual schools.

Located 587 kilometres west of Brisbane, Mitchell State School is situated in the town of Mitchell which marks the gateway to Queensland's outback. Our co-educational preparatory to year 10 school provides access to students from Mitchell, Mungallala, Amby and surrounding properties.

Our school aims to provide a quality education by maximising access, participation and outcomes for the full range of students through the use of effective teaching practices and provision of an inclusive curriculum within a supportive school environment. The foundation principle of all learning at this school is a belief that strong literacy and numeracy skills are central to all learning and are the essential ingredients for a life-long learner.

Departmental housing is available with this position.
