We already have basic class plans laid out which will save you a lot of time, but you will be responsible for learning quickly and completely understanding the plans and learning outcomes before you stand in front of your classes.

We are based in Brighton - around 30 minutes north of Hobart CBD and some days you'll be out at the TasTAFE campus in Clarence. It is essential that you have your own reliable transport to get you to and from work.
