If you choose to work in a West Coast school, you can get additional benefits on top of your salary, including:

  • rental accommodation for $10 per week.
  • settling in payment of $5,000.
  • up to $6,000 per year in the first three years.
  • up to $8,800 per year in your fourth, fifth and sixth year.

Teaching within these areas can also provide career progression and professional development opportunities that are not always available at urban schools.

If you are looking for a sea change, clean air and amazing wilderness, look no further than working on the West Coast of Lutruwita/Tasmania. It is remote, raw, untamed and like nowhere else.

On your days off, find your kind of adventure. Climb a mountain, chase a waterfall, cruise the waterways, ride the trails, go fly fishing. Explore the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Or slow right down. You choose.

Moving to the West Coast can change your life.
