This role will be working on a national education initiative, the Australian Teacher Workforce Data (ATWD) project. The ATWD is a data linkage project that will provide a comprehensive picture of the teacher workforce: across all states, territories and sectors, from entry into the profession to end of teaching career.
Initial teacher education data will be connected with teacher registration data across Australia, allowing the ATWD to provide critical insight on national and local trends in the challenges and opportunities facing the teaching workforce, helping us understand how we can better support the profession.
The role will have responsibility for analysis and interrogation of data, identifying patterns and trends and making this information accessible and meaningful through the creation of reports that are easy to understand and interpret. Development of these reports will draw on your exceptional writing skills and ability to conceptualise presentation of the data in a variety of easy to digest formats including charts, graphs and infographics. The role will also involve helping to set up processes to streamline the creation of these reports in future years, to reduce the workload involved with producing them year on year.
The role would be ideally suited to a self-starter with exceptional data interpretation and visualisation skills, and highly developed writing skills using clear, concise language. The role will require someone who learns quickly, enjoys the challenge of tight deadlines and turn-around times, and has considerable experience in translating evidence.
The role is fixed term until June 2021, with the possibility of extension thereafter depending on projects in hand. Flexible hours can be accommodated; however, full-time hours are preferred due to the short delivery timeframes associated with the project.
The tasks associated with this role include:
You will be a self-starter who likes to move fast, but is also passionate about quality and timely outputs. You will enjoy working in a small team environment. As the front line of contact with a range of external stakeholders you will be adept at establishing relationships and providing customer service that embodies AITSL’s values.
