The NSW Teacher Supply Strategy is an evidence-based plan to continue to attract and grow quality teachers, with the right subject qualifications, to locations where they are needed, to support and advance our students.
Our strategic priorities
Grow overall supply of teachers
To encourage more people from different backgrounds and areas of expertise to choose a career in teaching, both at the graduate and mid-career level.
Encourage more teachers to train in high-need and specialist subject areas
The department needs more teachers to specialise in areas of greatest need, particularly in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects.
Provide targeted teaching support for students in the places it is needed
Develop and support the profession in regional areas so students have access to the best education possible.
