    It is pretty tough in WA to get a permenant position, especially if you are not prepared to teach in the country in your first few year. I have just about finished my 7th year teaching and I only just got my permenancy this year, and that is with doing a country stint for 2 years as well. The staffing system in WA is shocking though, it is as good as a glorified lotto system.

    wow! i think it must be different in different states.
    i have an ongoing job that i am currently on maternity leave from (7 years). i actually also got asked if i'd be interested in interviewing for another job just last week. i declined as my ds2 is too young, but i think it shows that there is definitely work available in melbourne.
    we've also been told that with many senior staff retiring over the next 5 years and the baby boom, that there will be a teacher shortage.

    In NSW its pretty similar Ali. The chance of getting a job in your first few years out of uni is pretty slim unless you are prepared to go to whoop whoop.
