The Northern Territory’s (NT) population is just under 250,000 — with people living in rich and vibrant communities scattered all over the NT.

The Territory's multicultural and youthful population (the median age here is just 31), vast terrain, wild landscapes and rich mix of culture make teaching in the NT a unique experience.

Taking your career to the NT will open doors. Many teachers who choose to work in the Territory develop unique skills that fast-track their career and provide opportunities that wouldn’t have been possible in other parts of Australia.

Benefits

Teachers in the NT are the highest paid in Australia and receive generous allowances and benefits.

To ensure our teachers have a healthy work-life balance there are also opportunities for part-time work and job sharing.

As a teacher in the NT you will be offered:

  • A Laptop
  • Orientation and induction programs
  • Four-wheel drive training (remote teachers)
  • A wide range of professional learning programs.
