Preparing teachers for rural and regional settings: the RRRTEC project

Simone White

Globally many rural schools find it harder to attract and retain quality teachers than their urban counterparts. A group of teacher education faculties have addressed this problem through the Renewing Rural and Regional Teacher Education Curriculum (RRRTEC) project. The project takes a fresh approach to the preparation of teachers for non-metropolitan settings, by helping prepare teachers not just for the school and classroom but also for life in rural and regional communities. The project team has set up a website compiling resources to assist in the preparation of teachers for living and working outside Australia's major cities. While designed principally to assist teacher educators, the resource collection is also intended to be of value to others who wish to learn more about rural and regional education research.
