The NSW Government is ramping up its recruitment drive to attract quality teachers for NSW public school.
In particular, the government will be looking for additional teachers in disciplines such as science, physics, mathematics and technical and applied science.
New teachers will be deployed to areas experiencing population growth, such as the north west and south west Sydney.
As well as more teachers, the government is investing in:
- professional development support for teachers
- targeted learning programs and wellbeing support for students
- operational funding for schools.
Education Minister Rob Stokes said teachers are the engine that drives the education system.
“Only outstanding educational leaders can engage students,” Mr Stokes said.
“It is essential that we not only recruit them, but continue to offer comprehensive support to teachers throughout their careers.”
