The Queensland Government has a continuing commitment to ensure that all students, no matter where they live, have access to a range of high quality education and training programs.
Over half of all state schools in Queensland are in rural and remote locations, with approximately one-quarter of state school students enrolled in these schools. The Department recognises the dedication to quality teaching and learning occurring in state schools in rural and remote locations.
The Department has developed an Action Plan for Rural and Remote Education for 2011-2015 , which outlines the strategies being implemented by the Department to drive excellence in rural and remote schools.
Financial assistance and programs may be available for eligible students in rural and remote locations.
If you are interested in teaching rural, find out more about the opportunities available, including the Remote Area Incentive Scheme (RAIS), on the Make a Difference. Teach website.
