Schools Plus is featured in a number of recommendations made in a new review on Quality Initial Teacher Education. The Federal Department of Education, Skills and Employment worked with top teachers across the country to establish the recommendations.

The teacher education review found that:

  • high performing teachers, like Schools Plus’ Teaching Fellows, could be used to raise the status of the teaching profession.
  • a large-scale marketing campaign could be used to inspire more Australians to become top teachers. 
  • additional mentoring and support is needed for teachers in their first few years in the profession.

The latter finding mirrors our move to support Early Career Teachers at this year’s Commonwealth Bank Teaching Awards.
