The government today announced that University of Sydney Vice-Chancellor Mark Scott will lead a review of teacher training in Australia.
He will lead a panel of educational experts tasked with analyzing the way teachers are trained through the university system.
We provide a set of recommendations on how to enhance teacher performance to ensure better student outcomes in the classroom.
Education Minister Jason Clare says there are several reasons for Australia’s teacher shortage.
“The number of people entering college and becoming teachers is declining,” he told Sky News Australia.
“It’s been down about 16% over the last decade.”
Claire said the number of college students who have degrees and enter teaching professions is also declining.
“There are many experienced teachers who leave the profession early because they feel exhausted and burned out.
“Thus, this review focuses on the second of these challenges: helping colleges reach more students into teaching degrees.”
