New teachers to boost local schools in 2016

Member for Coffs Harbour, Andrew Fraser, has welcomed students and staff back to school for 2016.

“I’d like to wish all school students and staff starting the school year in the Coffs Harbour electorate the best of luck for 2016,” Mr Fraser said.


In NSW, 367 new permanent teachers and 42 principals started in new roles at public schools as school kicks off for 2016.


“This year three new full-time teachers are starting in roles in schools in the Coffs Harbour electorate.”


In addition, successful recipients of teaching cadetships, internships and scholarships start this year at government schools in NSW.


Working at a NSW public school continues to be a popular choice for beginning teachers with more than 200 applications for 50 teach.Rural scholarships, 105 applications for 25 cadetships and 123 applications for 25 internships.


These incentives are made possible by the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government’s Great Teaching Inspired Learning and Rural and Remote Education Blueprint reforms, providing valuable assistance to attract and retain quality teachers.


“The quality and calibre of candidates selected under the 2016 program was outstanding and includes students from schools and universities across NSW,” Mr Fraser said.


“To teachers beginning their career at a public school in the Coffs Harbour electorate, I wish you the very best in your career and know you will love working and living here.”
