Rural and remote teaching offers a range of professional, personal and lifestyle benefits for both new and experienced teachers.

The Rural and Remote Teacher Experience program gives urban teachers considering teaching in a rural or remote state school, the opportunity to see first-hand the benefits of living and teaching in a rural or remote location through a 1 week experience.

Teachers have travelled to schools in Darling Downs South West, Central Queensland, and North Queensland regions as part of the program.

In Semester 2, 2019 the program will be hosted in rural and remote state schools in Far North Queensland region.

Teachers interested in finding out more about the program, including information on how to apply, can contact ruralandremote@qed.qld.gov.au.
