what is a teaching job

Teaching in Australia consists of 3 main areas; primary school, secondary school and early childhood teaching roles. 

The school year in Australia begins in early February and ends in mid-December. The summer break includes Christmas, New Year, and is the busiest time of the year for locals to spend time at the beach. Teaching jobs become available throughout the year as well as during the summer months (winter months in the northern hemisphere) prior to the new school year.
