Abstract

This report provides the Queensland Department of Education and Training (DET) with independent evidence based data to enable the identification of barriers and enablers to effective attraction and retention of suitably qualified people to specialist teaching and non-teaching roles in Queensland secondary schools. The scope of this report is to consider the strategic imperatives, trends and drivers as they apply to the recruitment and retention of specialised teachers and nonteaching professionals. The research was specifically designed to inform DET on innovative and novel strategies to recruit and retain staff within Education Queensland in areas specifically identified as at risk of experiencing shortages in the near future. Those areas considered to be at risk of experiencing shortages included; • Teaching principals; • Specialist teachers in mathematics, science, industrial technology and design, and special education; and • Non-teaching professional roles, such as speech pathologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and registered nurses providing services in schools to students with special needs.
