Our schools in Australia are mainly government schools across Melbourne. We do have some contract opportunities in rural Victoria. If you would like to learn more about teaching in Australia, go to the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) or Contact us with your specific questions.
Are you working with an agency in Australia already?
No problem! You can work with other agencies but still work with us as well! We can still assist you and we’ll personally send out your profile to schools for contract work. While you are busy travelling or working as a CRT, we will be searching for quality contract work so that you can be involved with a school and develop your resume.
What are schools like in Australia?
Schools in Australia generally consist of Government Registered, Independent, and Catholic schools. Like other countries, schools differ depending on location, and size of the school. Most students wear a uniform (even in government schools) with staff dress being variable; we advise all teachers to pack professional dress.
At Leading Out, you have the opportunity to teach in both government registered and independent schools, and in rural and urban areas depending on your flexibility for travel and where you are located. Leading Out attempts to use schools which are close to public transport in an effort to make it easier for teachers to get to work.
In rural areas, you can get a true sense of living and working in Australia with some schools having a smaller population of students and staff. This gives a sense of community and often provides longer-term contracts for new and experience teachers!
