Roundtable focus areas in 2019

The first Education Workforce Roundtable meeting for 2019 was held on Tuesday 12 February welcoming Sally Milbourne, who replaces Malcolm Elliott as the new President of the Tasmanian Principals Association.

The Roundtable’s collaboration shall continue providing valuable advice to guide the Department’s workforce strategies, focussing this year on;

  • Strengthening initial teacher education and the support that is provided for early career teachers, and
  • Raising the professional status and profile of the teaching profession.

Instilling quality teaching practices in our teaching students, interns, and early career teachers is a central strategy for developing a world-class public education system. The Department’s efforts on these priorities will deliver positive and lasting impacts for Tasmanian students and learners for years to come.
