Charles Sturt University is giving people the chance to change their future by being part of the Mid-Career Transition to Teaching Program.
The Mid-Career Transition to Teaching Program has up to 50 positions available for people with an undergraduate degree working as industry professionals and teaching academics to transition into secondary teaching.
The Master of Teaching (Secondary) is a two-year online study teaching degree with a focus on Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Technology and Applied Studies (TAS).

Participants will be provided with a one-off $30,000 training allowance, a guaranteed permanent position in a NSW public school after graduation and a $30,000 study completion bonus phased over the first three years of employment in a NSW public school.
This program is suited to applicants with a design background in architecture, computing studies, fashion design, graphic design, industrial design, multimedia, interior design and landscape design or applicants with a background in information technology, agriculture, engineering or food/nutrition.
