Current Opportunities 

Teachers, Parents/Guardians and Students Survey 

The survey, conducted by the Social Research Centre is available online from 23 May to 23 June 2023. This survey provides an opportunity for students, teachers, parents and guardians to contribute their perspectives and help shape the future of education in Australia. 

Participants will be asked about student learning and wellbeing, teacher recruitment and retention, and funding transparency and accountability. 

The Expert Panel for the Review will use the results to help draft a consultation paper which will invite submissions from all stakeholders. Results will also inform the development of recommendations for the final report, which will advise Education Ministers on what targets and reforms should be included in the next National School Reform Agreement.
