How easy is it to get work teaching in Melbourne?
I am keen to hear from anyone who has gone over to Melbourne to teach. I am a secondary school teacher of English and Drama and want to know how easy it is to get work and what the schools are like. Any information would be awesome. Cheers
Finding a teaching job in the central city of Melbourne is apparently competitive as all teachers prefer to work there, so it's the outer rural areas that have the shortages! However, you should check out Seek for current job opportunities and see what it looks like: http://www.seek.com.au/education-training-jobs/all?DateRange=31&catlocation=1002&catlocation=1003&stateselected=true&catindustry=1208&catoccupation=1508&sortmode=1&onsite=htav
In terms of finding out what the schools are like, these sites might help: http://www.australianschoolsdirectory.com.au/melbourne-schools.php http://www.myschool.edu.au/
