More Teachers, Quality Teaching

A national recruitment advertising campaign was launched today to attract the best and brightest teachers with the interpersonal skills to make a difference in our schools from Term 1, 2021.

This is part of the Tasmanian Liberal Government’s commitment to continue employing more staff in our schools, with an additional 250 teachers and 80 teacher assistants to be employed over six years.

The campaign highlights the opportunities and advantages a teaching career in Tasmania offers, primarily targeting employment in regional, rural and high-priority locations throughout our state.

We know that teachers are vitally important in improving educational outcomes for our students, and it’s our strong commitment to ensure Tasmania has a job ready generation of young people with the skills to succeed in life.

Since 2018, the Tasmanian Government has permanently appointed 159 teachers who are currently supporting our students to improve educational outcomes across the state.

In addition, this campaign also aligns to the More Teachers Quality Teaching Action Plan, which is a key output of the Minister’s Education Workforce Round Table.
