Para-professional Program:

In partnership with several Universities, Teacher Education Students now have the opportunity to be employed in Catholic Schools Broken Bay as para-professionals from as early as their second year of study. Para-professionals are part of a long-term plan to address the teacher shortage and secure the best and brightest future educators to our system. Para-professionals are offered paid, casual employment in one or more of our 44 primary and secondary schools across the North Shore, Northern Beaches, and Central Coast. They can gain extensive in-school experience, supporting current teachers to plan and deliver high-quality learning to all students. Para-professionals can nominate their availability to fit around their university studies and other commitments and are supported to complete practicum placements with our schools where possible.

If you have further questions, or you would like to register your interest in the para-professional program please fill out THIS FORM and a member of our team will be in contact.
