Title New pathway looks to stem teacher shortage by retraining aides Degree of recognition National Media name/outlet Education HQ Media type Web Country/Territory Australia Date 03/02/22 Description In a bid to ease Australia’s looming teacher shortage, a new program has been developed to guide teacher’s aides into the profession.
The online pathway is available to teacher’s aides anywhere in Australia.
Charles Sturt University (CSU), in collaboration with schools in the Dubbo area, has created a program to retrain teacher’s aides as qualified teachers.
Under the program, aides could reduce their required placement days in recognition of their experience working in schools, along with receiving credit for prior qualifications such as a Certificate III or IV in Education Support or a Diploma of School Age Education and Care.
CSU senior lecturer Dr Libbey Murray said teacher’s aides are the perfect candidates to move into teaching.
