In October 2018 Minister Tehan asked the Laming review to inquire into and report on the teaching profession’s status, considering opportunities to improve outcomes in a range of areas. You may recall that the committee released a summary of issues arising from the public hearings held in April 2019.
The review paused during the recent Federal election. Minister Tehan has now requested Andrew Laming MP to resume the inquiry, requesting further advice on increasing the attractiveness of the profession, providing appropriate platforms for teachers, identifying ways to reduce out of hours work, investigating ways to increase retention rates, and how ‘burn out’ among teachers can be avoided.
There will, in turn, be a Government response to the Committee’s report and hopefully an opportunity for stakeholders to comment.
