Draft workforce action plan released: time for teachers to have our say

3 November, 2022

The federal government’s draft National Teacher Workforce Action Plan (the Action Plan) to address widespread teacher shortages has been released for public consultation.

The Action Plan has been developed as a result of the Teacher Workforce Working Group (the Working Group) discussions of which the IEU has been an active participant.

The Working Group was established in August 2022 to work on solutions to address the current workforce shortages by helping to attract and retain more people in the teaching profession.

IEU Federal Secretary Christine Cooper said our union has welcomed these collaborative discussions and the government’s commitment to work with teaching practitioners on these long-standing problems.
