Tap For Teacher-Casual Teaching at Catholic Schools Parramatta Diocese Ltd
How does it work?

Schools create casual booking opportunities through their own Tap for Teacher portal and release the dates along with any further information.

As a teacher, you will receive a notification electronically that an opportunity is available at the school for casual work which you can either Accept or Decline. Teachers can also set their profiles in Tap for Teacher to identify specific schools they want to be approached by as well as identifying their subjects of expertise (ie. Mathematics, English etc).

How do I sign up as a teacher?


First, you’ll need to register (HRTC) and be approved as a casual teacher with CSPD. To do this see Classification and Accreditation.


Please note that if you have not worked with CSPD in over 12 months, you will need to re-register for a HRTC and undergo another clearance.


A prerequisite for all teachers is that you must have relevant teaching qualifications and NESA accreditation. See Teaching in Catholic Schools.


Once approved, you’ll receive an invitation via text message.
