National Teacher Workforce Action Plan

On 15 December 2022, Education Ministers agreed on a National Teacher Workforce Action Plan (Action Plan) which sets out a clear pathway to addressing the national issue of teacher workforce shortages.

About the Action Plan

The Action Plan builds on a range of initiatives already underway in jurisdictions, sectors and individual schools. It is the first step of an ongoing strategy to attract more people to the profession and retain more teachers in the workforce.

Updates on the progress of the National Teacher Workforce Action Plan will be published throughout 2024.
