Casual.Direct is our automated casual teacher staffing system.

This statewide service provides many advantages to our schools and our approved casual teachers.

If you have current approval to teach as a casual or temporary teacher in our schools, you may register with Casual.Direct to be considered for casual teaching employment by completing the Casual.Direct Teacher Registration Form (PDF 3.7MB), and send to along with a copy of your approval letter and E-safety certificates.

Once you have registered with Casual.Direct a staffing officer may contact you between the hours of 6.00am to 10.00am or 3.30pm to 7.30pm to offer you a casual teaching engagement. You will be advised of the school name, name of the principal, the school address and telephone number.

Teachers registered with Casual.Direct are also considered for temporary teaching opportunities by the Teacher Relief Scheme to assist schools in covering longer term temporary vacancies.

To change your bank details please send this Bank Details Form (PDF 1.9MB) to eCPC.

In order to ensure our list of available casual teachers is current, all casual teachers who have not been engaged in at least the last three years are being deleted from our Casual.Direct database. If you are affected by this and wish to continue to be considered for casual employment, then please re-register using the Casual.Direct Teacher Registration Form (PDF 3.7MB).
