The Australian Education Reporter - - NEWS - JES­SICA CUM­MINS

NORTH­ERN Ter­ri­tory schools wel­comed 38 new teach­ers for the start of Term 3.

More than half of the re­cruits re­lo­cated from in­ter­state, and in­cluded re­cent grad­u­ates to those with more than 25 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence.

The new teach­ers will take po­si­tions in Alice (seven), Kather­ine (five), Darwin (six), and Palmer­ston and ru­ral re­gions (11).

NT min­is­ter for Ed­u­ca­tion Se­lena Uibo said hav­ing a se­cure and sta­ble ed­u­ca­tion work­force was a key pri­or­ity, with ex­tra 178 school based staff em­ployed since La­bor came into Gov­ern­ment.

“The Ter­ri­tory La­bor Gov­ern­ment knows teach­ers are key to achiev­ing gen­er­a­tional change and cre­at­ing brighter fu­tures for all Ter­ri­to­ri­ans, which is why we will al­ways in­vest in ed­u­ca­tion,” she said.
