As the population of Australia continues to increase, so does the need for school places. Being a teacher in Australia is highly regarded – not only is it generally well-paid, but you also get the bonus of generous school holidays throughout the lovely warm summer, as well as the ability to work within a top notch education system.

Australia is currently in short supply of secondary teachers, so if you have recently qualified as a secondary school teacher, or you have years of experience, you could be eligible to migrate and start a new life overseas.

Do I require appropriate qualifications to work in Australia?

In order to work as a secondary teacher in Australia you will need to be able to prove that you have the appropriate training and qualifications. In order to have your skills as a secondary teacher assessed you will need to send off your qualifications and any relevant experience that you have to the nominated assessment authority. In this case it is usually the Australian Institute of Teaching and School Leadership. In turn, they will respond with either a positive or negative outcome after assessing whether they believe your skills and experience are relevant to work within Australia.
