Teacher Careers

Our teachers work in schools and buildings across the city in many capacities, supporting students of all ages who have a wide variety of educational needs. They may teach regular programming or specialize in areas such as languages, career and technology studies or special education.

Edmonton Public Schools recruits teachers to a pool of teaching applicants. This means applicants are not able to apply for positions at specific schools. When a school has a vacant teaching position, a Human Resources consultant refers qualified applicants from the teacher applicant pool to the principal for consideration. 

If you are added to the teacher applicant pool, you can also request to work as a substitute teacher. However, this work is based on the needs of the Division.

Teachers are represented by the Alberta Teachers' Association Local 37.


The next opportunity to apply will be December 15-29, 2021. We accept applications from:

  • teachers who hold a valid Alberta Teaching Certificate
  • university students who have completed all of their student teaching practicums

If you plan to apply, we encourage you to get your application ready. You will need to review the items below and create an account. When the postings are available, you’ll be all set to sign in to your account, and complete and submit your application.

University students who will be completing their final teaching practicum in April 2022 should wait to apply on the April 2022 job postings.



Throughout the pandemic, the safety of our staff and students has been our priority. To continue keeping our school communities safe, Edmonton Public Schools employees will be required to meet new vaccination requirements.

If you are offered employment, you will need to: 

  • provide proof of full vaccination or
  • apply and qualify for a Division-approved exemption 

For detailed information, read our COVID-19 Vaccination Administrative Regulation


We’re focused on finding qualified applicants who bring a range of skills, perspectives and experiences. We’re eager to learn about what you can bring to Edmonton Public Schools. 

To make sure your application reflects everything you have to offer, review and complete the documents below.

We share job postings for teacher positions when there is a need to fill our teacher applicant pool. If there are no job postings in your area of expertise, please check back. 

Apply for one posting only, even if multiple postings are listed. Whether you’re a new graduate or an experienced teacher, you should apply for the posting that best matches your education, experience, ability and interest. If you are qualified to teach in other areas, you can let us know during the interview. Applying for more than one posting will delay the processing of your application. 

You should not be applying on job postings for teacher positions if you are: 

  • accepted into the teacher applicant pool
  • an active substitute teacher with Edmonton Public Schools
  • teaching under contract with Edmonton Public Schools

Thanks for your interest in Edmonton Public Schools. Due to the volume of applications we receive, we are unable to provide updates about your application. We will only contact applicants who are selected for an interview with us.
