ATWD Teacher Survey

The Australian Teacher Workforce Data (ATWD) initiative is providing insights into the national teacher workforce to identify how to better support the profession. The annual ATWD Teacher Survey is the opportunity for every teacher to share their story and insights. It's 'the teacher voice' in the ATWD. 

Every teacher's story is unique and collectively will help build a more complete picture of the teaching profession. Make sure your story is part of the picture by completing the ATWD Teacher Survey when it's open in your state or territory. To those teachers who have already taken part in the 2021 survey, a big thank you.
