The federal government will deliver an action plan in December 2022, following the recent round table discussion on the national teacher workforce crisis hosted by Federal Education Minister Jason Clare.
The National Teacher Workforce Action Plan will include the following priority areas:
- Elevating the profession
- Improving teacher supply
- Strengthening initial teacher education (ITE)
- Maximising the time to teach
- Better understanding future teacher workforce needs
The IEU will continue to represent the voices of members at the further state and federal level working groups and meetings, and our union’s federal Education Committee will be heavily involved in preparing submissions into the above priority areas.
