Promotion of the profession

Bahr, Nan and Graham, Anne and Ferreira, Jo-Anne and Lloyd, Margaret and Waters, Richard (2018) Promotion of the profession. Project Report. Southern Cross University , Gold Coast, Australia. [Report]


There has been a recent downfall in the applications for initial teacher education in Queensland, and yet there is a growing need for teachers across the state. This paper reports on a series of connected studies and literature reviews aimed at better understanding the predominant public opinions about teachers and teaching, how these opinions might be formed and influenced, and how public opinion relates to aspiration and engagement in the teaching profession in Queensland. The report considers the role of various media in the forming and shaping of public perceptions of teachers and teaching, and discusses the ways these might be strategically employed to raise the profile and regard for teaching as a profession worthy of high esteem and with important social value.
