Teaching in a Lutheran school
In Lutheran education, our desire is to see every person thrive in their work and life. Service in response to God's love is at the heart of all we do.
Lutheran schools have a growing need for Lutheran and Christian qualified teachers who seek to work in a learning environment that reflects the ethos outlined in the document The LCA and its schools and Growing deep. The appointment of staff is the responsibility of individual schools, taking into consideration their particular needs. In other words, there is no central appointment of staff.
All positions in Lutheran schools are advertised on the LEA website [Go to Find a job in a Lutheran school]. This site is updated on a regular basis.
The following provides some guidance for those interested in teaching in Lutheran schools:
Since appointments in Lutheran schools are a local school responsibility teacher graduates and/or experienced teachers are encouraged to study the employment vacancies in Lutheran schools that are advertised on the teachers.on.net and apply giving testimony 'to your Christian faith and commitment'. You should apply directly for positions in Lutheran schools as they are advertised. In addition, you may seek to meet with the appropriate regional director to discuss what it means to teach in Lutheran schools. During the first three years of your appointment in a Lutheran school you will be taken through the study requirements for accreditation as a teacher in the Lutheran school.
