​Purpose

To assist schools with costs associated in replacing teachers who are engaged as mentors in the Become a Rural and Remote Teacher program.

Duration of program

Until 2022

Eligibility

Schools where a mentor teacher is based.

Allocation of funds

One teacher will be engaged to provide mentoring to each scholarship recipient for the Become a Rural and Remote Teacher program. The program supports university students studying to become a teacher and have a commitment to working in Queensland’s rural and remote state schools at the completion of their study.

The mentoring teachers may change from term to term and therefore, the schools that receive funding under this program may also change. The amount that the school receives for Teacher Relief Scheme (TRS) will be in line with the current TRS rate.

Payment details

Payments are made in February, April, July and October in line with the scheduled monthly payments.
