Teachers are the number one in-school influence on student outcomes so it’s important that we understand the teaching experience.
The Australian Teacher Workforce Data Strategy (ATWD) connects teacher workforce data from around Australia. The ATWD will deliver critical insights to support better informed investment and decision making and deepen our understanding of the issues we need to address together.
For the first time in Australia we will have nationally consistent data on how many teachers are graduating, how many get jobs, their professional development and whether or not they stay in the profession. By learning more about the teaching experience, we can better understand the challenges and opportunities teachers face as a collective and support the profession.
