The Victorian Government is investing in the next generation of teachers – with the condition they choose to work in Victorian government schools for two years after they graduate.

A further $27 million will continue and expand the Targeted Financial Incentives Program – providing incentives of up to $50,000 to teachers from Victoria who work in regional positions at government schools.

Currently, there’s over 1,500 public teacher vacancies state-wide according to the Government’s Edupay website, including 24 in Greater Bendigo.
