Reviews about Pay & Benefits for Teacher in NSW Department of Education

A very difficult job working for a Government department that is often difficult to contact and very inflexible.

Teachers are not paid nearly enough for the work they do considering the high level of multiple skills required, long hours which are not remunerated per hour and an extremely stressful work environment putting up with behaviour from some students which would be considered abusive in any other workplace.


School Holidays, though teachers use some of this time to prepare for the upcoming school term.


Very long hours, not all at school, but preparation and assessment take up considerable out of school hours for most teachers.

Awesome Employer

I loved working as a teacher for the Department of Education NSW. I worked at two schools in Sydney and loved my time there. I was paid a rate that I felt was appropriate for my job requirements.
