Teachers, school leaders and the entire education sector can have their say in the 2019 Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership Survey which is open now.
AITSL Acting CEO Edmund Misson encouraged all those with a desire to positively impact student learning across Australia to get involved.
“Your views will help inform and guide the national effort to support excellence in teaching and school leadership in every Australian school,” Misson said.
“Evidence, collaboration and consultation with the profession are at the heart of our work and through the AITSL Stakeholder Survey, we want to hear from as many people and organisations as possible.
“This is a great chance to give us a fresh perspective on our work, how the tools and resources we co-develop with the profession are used, and how teachers and school leaders can get the most out of them.
“From pre-service and practising teachers to school leaders, teacher education providers, regulatory authorities, professional associations, peak bodies – and everybody in between – we are urging all involved in Australian education to have their say.”
The confidential responses to the online survey will inform AITSL’s current and future work, as it continues to work with the Federal Government, all states and territories, systems and sectors, to provide high quality education systems for students.
Take the 2019 AITSL Stakeholder Survey, and help us assess, inform and improve all that we do.
