DATTA Vic is working hard to address the current shortage of trained Technologies teachers on behalf of our members.
Following extensive research with schools from all over Australia in 2019, we created a report on the national teacher shortage, and then in 2020, we released the Victorian report. This details the impact of the crisis on our teachers and students.
In 2022, the national government published their DRAFT NATIONAL TEACHER WORKFORCE ACTION PLAN for stakeholder feedback. This plan aims to address the critical shortage of teachers in Australia. On behalf of our members, DATTA Vic submitted feedback which urged specific action on the Design & Technologies educator shortage.View the DATTA Vic Submission
