Torres Strait Islands Teacher Education Initiatives

JCU is working with Tagai State College, the Torres Strait Islander Teacher Regional Education Council and the Department of Education, Training and Employment to increase the number of Torres Strait Islander teachers teaching throughout Tagai State College.

If you are a Torres Strait Islander interested in becoming a teacher, please contact us to find out more about your options. Depending on the teaching area you are interested in working and your background, you could study for a Bachelor of Education in Townsville or in Cairns or at the JCU study centre on Thursday Island.
