I work for a education recruitment agency in Adelaide and thought I'd just offer some advice. As someone said in a early thread, when registering with supply agencies, we take a chunk of your wages, this isn't true. All my teachers who work for me get a a good salary and we don't actually make a lot of money. We are very community focused and keep costs low to assist the schools in need of good teachers.
Most of the schools here have their own TRT lists and will also use a cluster TRT lists too before using an agency. The process is the same, you must be interviewed by the school, reference checked and all documents will be checked before they even consider you for casual work.
There a mixture of government (DECD) catholic, Lutheran and private schools here and most have a large casual list.
Worth getting a DECD number which can be done easily online once you have your trb. Also the catholic clearance has not ceased so no need to apply for this any more.
To get perm teachers roles here is quite difficult unless as someone mentioned, your willing to go regional for some time to prove yourself as a Teacher.
Hope this helps?
Thank you all for the advice i will follow everything up and i will go regional as i can always stay the weekend with my son in Adelaide. I will be visiting you in August if you could send me an email with the address that would be helpfull. j
