Good News for Teaching Professionals in NSW
Good news for Teaching Professionals in NSW
Treasurer Dominic Perrottet and Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell announced a $400,000 investment to develop a brand new strategy dedicated to attracting the best and brightest from other professions into the teaching profession.
This also means that professionals are being encouraged to make a mid-career jump to teaching through a newly created pathway developed by the NSW government.
Mr. Perrottet said the model would be jointly developed by the NSW Government and Teach for Australia, drawing on their experience in attracting mid-career and high achieving professionals into teaching.
“This partnership will look at enabling successful mid-career professionals to make the switch to teaching by lessening the adverse financial impact of taking time out of the workforce to gain a teaching qualification.”
Subject areas and schools with teacher shortages will be targeted – particularly science, maths and TAS (Technology and Applied Sciences), and rural and remote schools.
“We know that more teachers are required in priority subject areas as well as our rural and regional schools, and this partnership will enable us to attract more high-quality people into the profession,” Ms Mitchell said.
This model is one of a range of initiatives the NSW Government is implementing to bolster the teaching workforce, including targeted scholarships in priority subject areas and the Casual Supplementation Program.
