Full-Time Teaching Jobs in Rural British Columbia

Do you enjoy winter camping, alpine skiing, kayaking, fly fishing, or hiking in BC’s provincial parks? Do you crave a more laid-back lifestyle in a quieter community? Do you want to live in a place where you know your neighbours and settle into a home that’s larger than the 500 sq ft condo you’re currently renting? Maybe you’re looking for an opportunity to teach full-time and have your own classroom?

If so, maybe it’s time to consider a move. School districts located in communities outside of the Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley regions are hiring and they need full-time teachers to start in immediately. There are over 86 full-time teaching opportunities currently available in BC’s rural and remote communities and in smaller cities located outside of the province’s major urban areas. Some these opportunities are full-time continuing and permanent positions in communities as remote and rural as Fraser Lake and as large as Prince George.

In addition to having the opportunity to teach full-time, teachers employed in rural and remote schools are eligible for an annual recruitment and retention allowance of approximately $2,400 Moreover, some school districts are also offering additional financial incentives such as moving and travel allowances and subsidized housing to attract new teachers.

If you’re ready for a change and to take on a full-time teaching role in a school district that will value your skills, consider these opportunities.
