Teaching in the NT

Living and teaching in the Northern Territory offers unique and breathtaking experiences. With our culturally diverse population of colourful characters and some of the world’s best-known landscapes, the Territory is a truly special place.

Catholic Education has schools in both urban centres and remote communities. For teachers there are many opportunities in the Territory. We have 17 Catholic schools in the region - five colleges, six primary schools and five remote schools.

Teaching and living in the urban centres – Darwin, Alice Springs and Katherine – offers all the comforts of modern Australian living, without the usual hustle and bustle of city life. Darwin is a lively, cosmopolitan and multicultural city with over one million international visitors annually and more people actively involved in the arts per capita, than any other Australian city. Alice Springs and Katherine are famous for their natural surroundings, with tourists flocking to see the natural wonders of Uluru (Ayres Rock) and Katherine Gorge. Both towns can boast an infrastructure impressive for their size and communities that are special places to be a part of.

If you have an interest in understanding and learning Indigenous culture, and enjoy a challenge and an adventure, then life in remote communities can offer very rewarding experiences. Teaching in a remote community can be a career and personal opportunity like no other. As a teacher, you will become an integral part of a close community and will be responsible for arming children with the skills they need for successful futures.
