Earn up to $700 per day to teach in Regional Victoria 

Education has been significantly impacted by the effects of the pandemic. Whilst schools across the state have all been affected, schools in Regional Victoria have been hit the hardest. 

To address this, the Department of Education has brought in a new financial incentive to help teachers from Metro Melbourne to support schools in Regional Victoria. The financial incentive will cover the costs incurred to travel plus some extra spending money. 

The DET have announced that, in addition to regular daily pay rates, it will subsidise $300+ per day, for metro-based Casual Relief Teachers who take up a post teaching in a Regional School.  


To qualify: 

  • To be eligible, teachers must be Melbourne metro-based OR be relocating from interstate, or overseas 
  • As this initiative is to bring more teachers into regional areas, teachers who already reside in Regional Victoria will not be eligble for the additional payment 
  • Teachers must work a minimum of 2 weeks in the identified placements to qualify 

The initiative is currently in place for the remainder of term 2 with the likeliness to continue into term 3.
