Teaching Graduates who spend three years at a rural NSW public school will be eligible to receive university scholarships.
Under the Rural and Remote Rewards scheme in NSW, 60 scholarships will be offered to new teachers.
The new teachers must accept to be posted at one of 150 eligible public schools across 33 rural and remote areas.
“This means no matter the town, wherever there are children, it must remain our priority to ensure there are well-staffed and well-resourced public schools,” Education Minister Rob Stokes said.
He added that country schools are the foundation of rural communities.
The scholarship will include $7500 a year to help students with studies, with an addition of $6000 bonus relocation costs.
In addition, there will be even more benefits under the ‘teach.Rural’ system.
Benefits from school to school will be different. There is an interactive benefits calculator available which lists the benefits available by each school.
They include rental subsidies of 50 to 90 per cent, annual retention benefits of $5000 for a maximum of five years, additional personal leave, additional professional development days, locality allowances, and transfer points.
Range of destinations and incentives will be available across the south, west or north region of NSW.
