Staff in Australia's School (SiAS) Survey

http://www.acer.edu.au/sias

This is an Australia-wide survey to collect information from school teachers and leaders about their background and qualifications, their work, their career intentions, and school staffing issues. The survey involves:

  • primary and secondary schools;
  • Government, Catholic and independent schools; and
  • all states and territories.

The survey is intended to provide:

  • a descriptive picture of the teacher workforce, including demographic information such as gender, age, qualifications and work roles;
  • information to assist in planning for the future, including data from current teachers and school leaders about their employment intentions and career plans, and staffing issues that schools are facing; and
  • changes since the first SiAS surveys in 2006-07 and 2010.

The information will help inform important workforce issues such as teacher career and retirement intentions, and current teacher shortages.
