Australia / Seven out of eight teaching graduates have failed to secure a permanent job

SEVEN out of eight teaching graduates have failed to secure a permanent job with Queensland’s Education Department.

As teachers get ready to go back to school, their union warns this year will be one of the worst to attain a job in state schools.

Almost 16,000 teaching applicants are seeking employment with the Department of Education, Training and Employment – the state’s largest teaching employer – including more than 1000 new university graduates.

DETE assistant director-general Duncan McKellar said as of January 16, 1608 graduates had applied for a job to teach in state schools in 2013. Only 197 of those had secured permanent jobs. Another 348 have been given temporary employment, leaving 1063 – about two-thirds – looking for jobs elsewhere.

The Queensland Teachers’ Union says this will be one of the toughest years for graduate teachers to secure a job after DETE acknowledged there would be about half a classroom teacher less at each state primary school – assuming enrolments remain the same as last year – as a result of a staffing formula change. But QTU vice-president Julie Brown said there were likely to be even fewer teachers hired throughout 2013 because of the staffing change. “The sad news is that some of those graduates will go interstate or overseas,” she said.
