CRT networks provide an opportunity for casual relief, relieving and emergency teachers (CRTs) to connect with a supportive and like-minded group of colleagues. These networks were originally established with the support of VIT and continue to operate on a voluntary basis around metropolitan and regional Victoria.

CRT networks provide relevant and practical professional learning for members, as well as a community for CRTs to connect with other teachers working in a similar context. Some networks communicate online and many take the opportunity to regularly meet face-to-face. CRT networks can provide an ideal place for beginning teachers to connect with, and gain support from more, experienced colleagues working in the same context.

These networks are not employment agencies; they exist to support the professional development of CRTs. 

If you wish to join one, please contact the relevant network leader.

If you are thinking of setting up a network in your area and require guidance, please email
