Report: WA Teacher Demand and Supply Projections


I think this report is about a year old, but if you haven’t read it, it makes fascinating reading! The report has been prepared for DET and offers projections on WA Teacher employment for the period 2010 – 2017. 

Under supply will impact WA teaching in both Primary and Secondary with 30% of teachers and administration expected to retire in the next five years. There will be a particular peak as the ‘half cohort’ exit secondary colleges at the end of 2014.  Mathematics, Science (Chemistry/Physics in particular) and Design/Technology teachers will be in very short supply – and Principals should ensure that if staff from these learning areas are on duty during morning tea it would be prudent to secure cake and biscuits for them. In short… treasure them…. even if you may not like them :). Read the report here: http://www.det.wa.edu.au/education/cpr/docs/WATeacherDemandandSupplyProjections.pdf
