$6000 for teachers
Student teachers can apply for the new cadetships, internships and rural scholarships as part of the state government's Great Teaching, Inspired Learning reforms.
There are 20 Teach.Rural Scholarships worth $6000 for every year of full-time study, plus $5000 after graduation for students with a commitment to teach at rural and remote schools.
There are 10 internship placements for high-achieving final-year teacher education students to be employed as paraprofessionals in schools prior to graduation and 10 cadetship placements for high-achieving school leavers to be employed as part-time paraprofessionals in classrooms from the start of their teacher training.
The cadetships, internships and rural scholarships are designed to attract and retain the best and brightest new teachers.
Applications close November 16.
