As teachers you can complete the ATWD Teacher Survey and be part of this national initiative
The ATWD Teacher Survey is the teachers’ voice in the ATWD. By completing the annual Teacher Survey, your experiences will be included in the national picture we are building of the teaching profession. The Teacher Survey will add to the data in the ATWD and provide greater insights into the career pathways and work experiences of teachers across Australia. This includes:
- teaching loads
- how often do teachers teach out-of-field and how are they supported to do this
- how many graduating teachers receive an induction
- understanding the development of early career teachers
- the prevalence of contract employment
- the retention rate of teachers in the first five years
- how long teachers stay in the profession.
If you're a registered teacher, you’ll be receiving a personal link to your Teacher Survey by your teacher regulatory authority. Dates and more details about this are below. Your participation is voluntary, however your voice is very important. The more teachers we hear from, the more complete the overall national picture will be. The survey takes no longer than 10 minutes to complete. If you’re a school leader or early childhood service leader, we’d love if you could encourage teachers at your school or early childhood service to participate.
When you can complete the ATWD Teacher Survey
The ATWD Teacher Survey is rolled out every year between September and April. Teacher regulatory authorities are providing links to the ATWD Teacher Survey to all their registered teachers either at re-registration or by email. Watch out for your 2019 invitation from your regulatory authority.
