Support for pre-service teachers

Choosing a career in country education is about lifestyle as much as a rewarding career in teaching.

We are passionate about education in our country and rural areas and as part of this we aim to encourage and support the best teachers to work in our country schools.

In order to support pre-service teachers who are equally as passionate about establishing a life and a teaching career in the country, the South Australian Commission for Catholic Schools (SACCS) offer annual Country Scholarships for our aspiring pre-service teachers.

They are available to pre-service teachers who are in their final two years of a full-time teacher education program at a tertiary institution in South Australia. Pre-service teachers who are in their final year of study are also encouraged to apply for a one-year scholarship.

Catholic country schools in South Australia are determined by being a minimum of 70 km from the Adelaide GPO.

Recipients of the Scholarship receive:

  • Financial support of $2,500 per year of scholarship
  • Nonā€financial support provided by the Catholic Education Office through assistance and guidance in the application process for country schools.
