Applicants must demonstrate good organisation, communication and presentation skills. Professional experience in the field is also encouraged.

Note: Your subject preference may be used by the assessors when making their selection. Please contact the subject coordinator to discuss your preference to teach in the subjects you are applying for, if you are concerned that the preference may disadvantage you.
