Qualified teachers can now apply for hundreds of permanent secondary teaching positions in public schools as part of the statewide teacher recruitment for 2022.

This includes positions arising from the year 7 to high school move and the four new schools opening in Aldinga, Angle Vale, Goolwa, and Whyalla next year.

Two of the new schools, Aldinga Payinthi College and Riverbanks College B-12, are advertising both primary and secondary vacancies at the same time, to ensure they are ready to open to students in 2022.

Minister for Education John Gardner said it’s an exciting time for public education in South Australia.

“As we deliver a world-class education system, we need high-quality educators in our schools and preschools leading the way, by skilfully lifting student outcomes to achieve growth for every child in every class in every school,” said Minister Gardner.

“Next year will certainly be one of a kind with year 7s moving into high school and the opening of four new schools.

“New schools are always an exciting opportunity and I encourage teachers to consider applying to be part of these teams.

“Whether you are a teacher looking for a career change, a graduate looking for your first job, a contract teacher seeking a permanent role, or are new to the public education system, I encourage you to consider applying for a teaching position in a South Australian government school.”

Schools in the APY Lands are also advertising both primary and secondary vacancies.

More than 100 primary teachers have already secured a role in a public secondary school in 2022 as part of phase 1 recruitment.

All applicants must currently be registered or be able to register with the Teacher Registration Board of South Australia before taking up a position.

Applications for the secondary teaching positions close Thursday 20 May. For more information, visit the Department for Education’s website.
