The number of teacher aides employed in Australian schools is based on the funding model of each State, Territory or non-government education sector. Additional funding is allocated by the Commonwealth government, to employ teacher aides to provide specialist support such as disability, literacy and numeracy support.

Pay and conditions vary depending on the State award, and whether the teacher aide is employed in a government, catholic or independent school. 

Simply click on your State or Territory to find more information about the teacher aide work role and employment conditions.
