Tutor learning initiative


Tutors to support student learning: register here

Victorian schools are recruiting approximately 4100 tutors to support students in catching up with any learning they may have missed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

If you are a pre-service teacher, a teacher on leave, a teacher working part-time who is looking for more hours, a recently retired teacher or a casual relief teacher – we need you!

We need your help, as a teaching professional, to ensure no student is left behind.

This is part of the largest initiative in the state's history to provide students with extra individual support, with $250 million being invested in this initiative.

Victorian teachers have done a remarkable job this year and with the additional support of onsite tutors, these teaching teams can ensure that students have dedicated and individualised support throughout 2021.

Tutors are needed in every government school, and every non-government school that needs support. We'll need tutors for primary, secondary and specialist schools – starting from the beginning of the 2021 school year. Hours will vary depending on the needs of the school. Tutors will be working on the school site.

We're inviting you to register your interest now, so that we can provide you with more information in the coming weeks.

To register, please complete the fields below.
