General Information and eligibility

The Language Teacher Register assists schools to find qualified language teachers to fill vacant language teaching positions in government schools.

The Language Teacher Register is open to graduating, graduate and currently employed language teachers who are seeking a language teaching position in a government primary or secondary school. Eligible language teachers can register using the ‘SurveyMonkey’ online form.

Principals at Victorian government schools are able to contact the Languages Unit at the Department of Education and Training (DET) if they are seeking to employ a qualified language teacher.

When a relevant teaching position becomes available, a registrant will be sent, via email, the details of this position. The onus is then on the registrant to contact the school and formally apply for the position.
To be eligible for inclusion on the Languag Teacher Register, language teachers must:
- have be registered with the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT); and
- be currently studying or have graduated from a teaching course with a learning area (methodology/specialty) in Languages; and
- be a native or near native speaker of the language and/or have completed tertiary level (university major) language studies.
