DESCRIPTION


In 1997, the Conference of Education Systems Chief Executive Officers recommended procedures be put in place to enable regular monitoring and reporting on the labour market for teachers. Subsequently, a series of reports on this issue were produced for the Ministerial Council on Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs (MCEETYA). Reports about the demand for, and supply of teachers, have been published for 1998, 1999, 2001, 2003 and 2004.

The last in the series, 'Demand and Supply of Primary and Secondary School Teachers in Australia (2004)', was prepared by the Department of Employment, Science and Training in conjunction with the then MCEETYA Teacher Quality and Educational Leadership Taskforce (TQELT) - Teacher Supply and Demand Working Group. It investigated the main characteristics of the labour market for teachers. It provided a comprehensive overview of national teacher supply and demand issues for both the government and non-government sectors. It used international examples of labour markets and recruitment policies and analysed the long-term trends emerging in Australia's supply and demand issues of teachers and the likelihood of future teacher shortages.

DISSEMINATION
