Subjects Accredited to Teach

The Subjects Accredited to Teach report provides information on the number of teachers within a principal’s workforce who are accredited and/or willing to teach particular subjects. It enables the principal to see the overall distribution of their teaching workforce by subject. It is also possible to drill down and identify the teachers, by name and subjects.

For Executive Directors and Directors of public schools, the report provides the same facility but for all schools within their Principal Network.

How will this report benefit me?

This report will help Principals to plan their workforce, including but not limited to, deployment of a teacher in one faculty against a vacancy in another faculty, and matching current teachers to upcoming roles.

Schools could also use the network level data to connect with colleagues in other local schools.
