Cadets are employed in a part time capacity, with guarantee of a permanent teaching position on successful completion of their study. In their first year, cadets will support teachers in non-classroom roles, giving teachers more time to focus on core teaching and learning activities. In their second and subsequent years cadets will be supervised closely by teachers as they support all aspects of the teaching role, including in the classroom.

Strengthening the professional experience
Working in partnership with universities to strengthen initial teacher education programs, with a focus on improving the quality of professional experience in schools, including supporting experienced teachers in their role as mentors and supervisors to initial teacher education students.
Improving the evidence base for our teaching workforce
