Abstract

The Staff in Australia’s Schools (SiAS) survey was commissioned by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) in April 2010. It was conducted by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) from August to December 2010. The survey is intended to provide a detailed picture of the Australian teacher workforce, and to gather information to assist in future planning of the workforce. It is also designed to provide comparative and updated data following on from the first SiAS survey conducted in 2006-07. The work was supported by an Advisory Committee2 that included representatives from DEEWR, government education authorities from all states and territories, the National Catholic Education Commission (NCEC), the Independent Schools Council of Australia (ISCA), the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), and the following national associations:

  • Australian Council of Deans of Education (ACDE)
  • Australian Education Union (AEU)
  • Association of Heads of Independent Schools of Australia (AHISA)
  • Australian Primary Principals Association (APPA)
  • Australian Secondary Principals Association (ASPA)
  • Catholic Secondary Principals Australia (CaSPA)
  • Independent Education Union of Australia (IEUA)
