Reviews for Teacher in NSW Department of Education


Everyone knows that teaching is not at ALL what it used to be. The education system is slipping, and standardised testing, collection of data and a crowded curriculum means you rarely get to know or care for your students because you are so stressed all the time. Shameful.

Workplace ethos is determined by the Principal and varies greatly between campuses.

Each school / campus is run by the Principal which can be dictatorial or consultative. With time the demands on teachers are increasing, leading to increasing numbers of teachers suffering burnout.


Can be a great experience if You score a supportive school, and if you are prepared to learn from those around you (students and staff).


Never ending data collection, PL that isn’t useful, meetings, lack of respect from parents and staff, constant demands on your ‘free time’ that should be used for lesson prep, too much admin work.

The place to be if you are a teacher.

Schools can be very different. Overwhelmingly the staff are friendly and collaboration is the order of the day. There is a tendency to lose this collaboration as you move into executive positions but again this is a culture that comes down from the top. If the Principal is collaborative, the school is pleasant. As Principals change so does the culture of the workplace. It's a lottery, some times you win.


Collegiate atmosphere, make lifelong friends. Watch students mature and become adults.


High degree of administration and reporting which actually detracts from teaching.
