By Michelle CavanaghThe health of Australian education is under threat, according to a new report.
The National Education Association’s annual education job report said the sector needed to “work more collaboratively” to improve outcomes, and warned that “education will continue to be undervalued in Australia”.
The report, entitled National Education Job Outlook, said education was “undervalued in the workplace” because of the current global economic and health challenges, and that “universities do not yet have the capacity to adapt”.
“The sector is at risk of being replaced by technology, and the skills of those workers are at risk as well,” the report said.
The report called for “national education leadership to focus on improving outcomes in the education sector through collaborative work and support for teachers and support workers”.
“To achieve this, the industry needs to address the current challenges of workforce turnover and job creation and improve training and mentoring,” the organisation said.
A new report from the National Education Associations (NEA) says the sector needs to work more collaborationally.
The NEA’s annual report said education is “underrated in the workforce” because it has been “lacklustre for the last 20 years”.
“This has led to the under-utilisation of teachers and the underutilisation and under-sourcing of health workers and education workers,” the NEA said in its annual report.
“The Australian public education system is at a significant crossroads as we move towards the future.”
We have to act now to ensure that our economy is not destroyed by our students and teachers leaving for the next university or job.
“To do so, we must collaborate more effectively, ensure we are supporting our teachers and supporting our health and education workforce.””
As an education sector, we need to work together to improve our skills and education outcomes,” the group said.
“To do so, we must collaborate more effectively, ensure we are supporting our teachers and supporting our health and education workforce.”
This will ensure that education in Australia remains the only sector that can effectively support our economy as we enter a new era of disruption.
“The NEIU said the NAO’s report highlighted “the importance of the sector” to the country’s economic future.
In the report, the NAI said the current government had been slow to implement its reforms in the sector, including the introduction of a “student debt free” scheme.
It said the new government had yet to deliver the government’s promise to introduce a national teacher pension scheme.”
Many employers have been left with the responsibility of providing their workforce with a pathway to full employment,” the NAIU said.”
Employers have been asked to provide services to their workforce which would ensure that their workforce remains able to continue to provide high quality education to their students and to their employees.
