Information for Design Students on Working as a Technician in Schools

Design students - are you seeking a fantastic part-time job in the field of design with a decent wage and great conditions?

Graduates, do you want to kickstart your design career in a growing field that offers incredible experience for anything you chose to do in the future, that also gives you access to equipment and machinery?

DATTA Vic is the professional association for teachers of Design & Technologies in Victorian Schools. In order to improve the quality of design education and address the critical shortage of teachers, we are establishing an Industrial Design Students as Technicians in Schools program.  We'll be bringing together schools who need to hire someone, and students looking to progress in their careers.

Step 1 Tell us you're interested!

Complete this Student Expression of Interest form letting us know you're keen to find out more.

Step 2 - Watch your emails!

We'll pass on your details to schools seeking employees, or alert you to any jobs in your areas and field.

More information on a School Technician Roll

The salary for a School Technician is identified in the VGSA Education Support Class Salaries.

These jobs are awarded from Range 1-2 to 2-1, depending on the responsibilities the school requires. Please note that the salaries below are for full-time positions, so working 2 days per week would be approx. 40% of these amounts. (Independent and Catholic Schools have different industrial agreements, so the wages may be slightly different depending on their situation.)

Prospective employees would expect to undertake a Working with Children check prior to starting any work in a school.

If you want to know more about how Design & Technologies is taught in schools, visit the VCAA website.

And remember, it's free as a student to join DATTA Vic, so please do sign up - you'll get ongoing help, support, training options and networking opportunities
