Education and Training

This is a fast growing, large employing industry. It includes teaching across all levels of schools, as well as University Lecturers and Tutors. There are jobs across Australia. Most jobs need a university degree, but there are lower skilled jobs like Teacher's Aide that can provide a pathway. The older age profile suggests there could be opportunities as workers retire.
