Draft National Teacher Workforce Action Plan

  • The Draft National Teacher Workforce Action Plan (Plan) has been developed to address teacher shortages by helping to attract and retain more people in the teaching profession.
  • The Plan includes 28 actions across six priority areas:
    • Elevating the profession
    • Improving teacher supply
    • Strengthening initial teacher education
    • Maximising the time to teach
    • Better understanding future teacher workforce needs
    • Better career pathways to support and retain teachers in the profession
  • The Plan was developed by a Working Group led by the Secretary of the Australian Government Department of Education with senior officials from state and territory governments and representatives from unions and education peak bodies.
  • Consultation feedback on the Plan will inform discussions of Education Ministers at their meeting in December and further refinement of the Action Plan.
