Introducing the Australian Teacher Workforce Data strategy (ATWD)

Teachers are the number one in-school influence on student learning so understanding the profession is crucial for supporting all teachers to maximise their impact.

At TRBNT we're committed to quality teaching. That's why we're participating in the Australian Teacher Workforce Data Strategy. The ATWD will provide a national view of the Australian teaching workforce. While we have a strong understanding of teachers' experiences and needs in the Northern Territory the education community needs a complete and national picture of teaching in Australia.

From 2018, teacher registration data will be part of the ATWD. For the first time ever in Australia the ATWD will gain a big picture perspective of the national teacher workforce - informing and helping decision-makers to create policies that will strengthen the profession.

Registration data from TRBNT will become part of the ATWD and contribute to the national view of the Australian teaching workforce.

The ATWD will only include linked, de-identified data to be used for reporting and research purposes. AIHW will never disclose the personal information it receives from the TRB NT and the use of the personal information is subject to the AIHW Act. Teachers will not be identifiable in any reports on ATWD data.
