I am about to finish my Cert 3 in Education Support (only two subjects to go, yay!) and was wondering how I go about getting a job once I have my qualification. I will be looking for work in primary schools.
Do I just hand my resume in at different schools? What sort of things will they be looking for on a resume apart from my qualification?
I was also wondering what the pay rate actually is for teacher aides and how many hours a week you guys usually get.
I'm also a bit worried if they place me with an older primary grade as most of my voc placement has been with lower primary (prep - yr 2). Is what we have to do with the upper grades much different?
I'm so excited to finish my study and start work, I hope it isn't too hard to come by a job!
Thank you for any help in advance xxx
