Studying the Effectiveness of Teacher Education Project: Final Report Released
This four year longitudinal project investigated the effectiveness of teacher preparation for early career teachers employed in diverse settings across Queensland and Victoria. It followed 2010 and 2011 graduates from initial teacher education to their first teaching positions and subsequent career pathways. In addition, it investigated their principals’ perceptions of the graduates’ effectiveness as beginning teachers.
It is the first study of its kind in Australia in terms of breadth and scope, involving around 5,000 early career teachers and 1,000 principals, and produced significant findings to inform teacher education policy and practice and new teacher induction. VIT is proud to be a partner in this significant Australian Research Council's Linkage Project.
