    Registering to teach in WA

    Hi, I went through this a few months ago when I moved over. You have to get non-practicing registration first, this will enable you to start teaching (provided you have applied for a WWCC). When you have completed your first day teaching (even relief work) you send the TRBWA a 'Notice of Teaching' form. One you have taught for a minimum of 100 days you can then apply for Full-registration. If you need any more info. about registration, or teaching here in general, just let me know. Happy to help!

    Teaching in Perth

    Hi all, great forum here, this is my first post! I'm a post-primary teacher with 10 years experience at both classroom and management level and I'm moving to Perth in August. Does anyone know what the jobs situation is like in education? Is it best to sign up with an agency such as ANZUK and get relief work with the hope of getting a more permanent contract or should I be emailing or calling in to individual schools with my CV on arrival. Is there enough relief work available to keep a teacher going for a while? My teaching subjects are HASS, geography, environmental studies and ICT. I also have NZ citizenship so I don't have to worry about sponsorship or any job restrictions. I have also applied for TRBWA registration and will have it before I arrive. Any advice would be very much appreciated. I'm looking forward to the move but also a little anxious about being able to find a steady supply of work. Thanks!

    Cycling in Perth

    Hi I'll be bringing the bike as oversized checked in luggage, it won't cost any extra if it's within my baggage allowance. If the bike plus my other baggage is over my baggage allowance the bike will cost 150USD extra to check in. Pretty reasonable I think.

    Cycling in Perth

    Hi all I'll be moving to Perth in a little over two weeks now. Initially I'll be living NOR in Westminster. I'll be bringing my road bike and am looking forward to getting out cycling and exploring the place. Are there any members here interested in going for a spin and showing me some local routes? Are there any local cycling clubs that anyone can recommend? Thanks.

    Hi, I have sent you a private message with a copy of my CV. I would be delighted to be considered for the position.

    Teaching in Perth

    Hi thanks for the reply! I get an automatic visa on arrival with my NZ passport. I have taught science in the past so hopefully I land some work pretty quickly. I received an email from one of the teaching agencies, they said there is quite a bit of day to day relief work in term 3 and start of term 4. Hopefully that should keep me going for a while.
