2021 Australian Teacher Workforce Data initiative
The Australian Teacher Workforce Data (ATWD) initiative is delivering an evolving picture of the national teacher workforce, from initial teacher education through all stages of the teacher career, and across all states, territories and employer sectors.
The ATWD is exploring key areas such as the supply of teachers, career pathways and the challenges teachers face, such as time spent on teaching and other activities, working hours and out-of-field teaching.
The ATWD Teacher Survey
The ATWD Teacher Survey is the largest survey of the teacher workforce in Australia. It is a voluntary, 10-minute survey that is sent annually to all registered teachers in Australia. All teachers have unique experiences and insights, and every teacher’s story is important.
How to participate in the ATWD Teacher Survey
This year, teachers and leaders will be invited to participate in the ATWD Teacher Survey via an email from the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) in early November.
VIT supports the ATWD
VIT is committed to quality teaching and believes the ATWD will be a valuable, evidence-based workforce planning resource that will help ensure teachers are well-supported and schools are well-resourced to deliver quality learning for all Australian children.
Privacy is protected
The ATWD complies with all Commonwealth, state and territory privacy legislation. It contains only de-identified data; no personal information is included, and individual teachers cannot be identified.
