All SA Government schools must follow a recruitment process. Private music instructors are encouraged to contact their school leaders to discuss their intended process.
Anyone seeking engagement as a private music instructor must apply for an authority to work letter.
To receive an authority to work letter you must attach to the online application your:
- DCSI child related employment screening letter
- Responding to Abuse and Neglect in Education and Care (RAN-EC) certificate.
Private music instructors must provide each school with a copy of their current:
- authority to work letter
- DCSI relevant history screening clearance letter
- RAN-EC certificate.
The authority to work letter must also be forwarded to decd.musicprograms [at] sa.gov.au
The authority to work letter requires renewal every year.
The Graduate Certificate in Music Teaching is offered by the University of Adelaide’s Elder Conservatorium of Music and aimed at in-service instrumental music teachers.
Graduates will gain the skills required for registration with the Teachers' Registration Board of SA, under the special authority to teach category.
