Supporting teachers, advancing students

The Strategy sets out our vision to deliver a sustainable pipeline of teachers with the right subject qualifications and in the right locations to meet our students’ needs.



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.
