Australian Teacher Workforce Data (ATWD) Teacher Survey – now open


If you are a currently registered teacher in Western Australia, the ATWD Teacher Survey is now open.

The survey will be open from 16 August to 17 October 2021.

Australian Teacher Workforce Data (ATWD) initiative

The Australian Teacher Workforce Data (ATWD) initiative is delivering an evolving picture of the national teacher workforce, from initial teacher education through all stages of the teacher career, and across all states, territories and employer sectors.

The ATWD is exploring key areas such as the supply of teachers, career pathways and the challenges teachers face, such as time spent on teaching and other activities and working hours.

The ATWD is a joint initiative between, and is funded by, all state, territory and Commonwealth governments. It is being implemented by the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) in partnership with the Australian Government Department of Education and Training, the states and territories, teacher regulatory authorities and the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW).

The ATWD Teacher Survey

The ATWD Teacher Survey is a voluntary 10 minute survey. The ATWD wants to hear from teachers to gain real insight into the modern teaching experience, including contemporary challenges and other important characteristics of the workforce.

The ATWD Teacher Survey brings the teacher voice into the ATWD.

The TRBWA encourages teachers to participate in the ATWD Teacher Survey. Registered teachers will receive an email from the TRBWA in mid to late August explaining how to access the survey – via Teacher Login.

Visit the the TRBWA website, log into Teacher Login and select the ATWD Teacher Survey tab at the top of the page.

You can then click on ‘start survey’ button. If you don’t complete the survey, you can return to this tab and click on the ‘start survey’ button again, and continue with the survey.
