Incentives For Regional Kinder Teachers
The Victorian Government is offering financial incentives to attract more early childhood teachers to regional areas as the rollout of Three-Year-Old Kindergarten continues in 2021.
Minister for Early Childhood Education Ingrid Stitt announced an additional $510,000 to boost early childhood incentives and to achieve parity with incentives to attract hard-to-staff positions in schools.
Under this funding, incentives will range between $9,000 and $50,000 for successful teachers.
The funding will be available to current early childhood teachers who take jobs 100 kilometres or more from their current place of residence or who are making a switch from a teaching career in primary schools.
