Will your teaching staff be here at the end of the year? Workload, particularly increased non-teaching tasks, lack of support, and the lack of respect and appreciation for the teaching profession, are the main reasons many teachers choose to leave the occupation (Buchanan, 2010). A 2014 Commonwealth Government report on national teaching workforce data indicated that 5.7 per cent of teachers were leaving annually. The TALIS report 2018 revealed only 64 per cent of graduate teachers enter the teaching workforce, with other research indicating that 30 per cent of these teachers leave within in the first three years (Mason & Mattas, 2015). This data suggests that only 45 per cent of the available early career teaching workforce is retained beyond three years. This coupled with the fact that 30 per cent of teachers in Australia are aged 50 and above, indicates a need for action (TALIS, 2019).
