Teaching in rural and regional Victoria is a rewarding and exciting experience. That's why the Victorian Government has partnered with universities and Country Education Partnership to offer programmes that make completing a preservice teacher placement at a rural or regional school easier.
If you are studying teaching, and are considering a regional or rural placement, you can access programmes with incentives that can help cover costs of your placement. Programmes also offer other supports and resources to help you get the most out of the experience. Plus, you'll be able to connect with the local community to see what's on offer in rural and regional Victoria. With supports like these, you can focus on developing your skills and confidence in the classroom.
Completing a teaching placement in a rural or regional school is a great way to kickstart your career. Build relationships with future employers, and make a big difference in local communities across Victoria. Keen to learn more?
