About the Project

Project summary

The Longitudinal Teacher Education Workforce Study is being funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) under the Teacher Quality National Partnership.

This study provides a research framework to track teacher education graduates and capture workforce data. The framework derives from an existing longitudinal study (an ARC Linkage Project), involving surveys of 2010 teacher education graduates and principals in Victoria and Queensland. This will be replicated with appropriate modifications and implemented in the other states and territories in 2011 in order to capture 2011 graduates. The proposed LTEWS will track all 2011 teacher education graduates in Australia through a series of surveys over a two-year period, collecting data on the impact of pre-service and in-service education and experiences on teacher quality, supply and distribution. It will generate data relating to teacher shortages, career trajectories and aspirations, and the impact of significant social and economic events on teacher labour markets. The analyses of the data is likely to inform national teacher reforms being developed and implemented under the National Partnerships program.

There are two main components of this nation-wide longitudinal study:

  • Career progression from teacher education into, and possible exit from, teaching employment.
  • Views over time on the relevance and effectiveness of their teacher education for their teaching employment.
