Teacher supply Cabinet paper

The Government has announced a one off $9.5 million package to boost teacher supply. It addresses immediate pressures by supporting more graduates into permanent teaching positions, supports experienced teachers back into the profession and recruits new graduates into teaching.

This is the first stage of a comprehensive programme to alleviate teacher shortages and build a strong and engaged workforce. It is in addition to other initiatives currently underway to address teacher workloads and raise the status of the profession.
