Teacher Job Satisfaction. Snapshots. Issue 12
Wernert, Nicole
Australian Council for Educational Research
In November 2018, the Australian Government announced an inquiry into the status of the teaching profession that would examine ways to ensure that the profession remains fulfilling and rewarding for educators. While the inquiry's proceedings lapsed with the calling of the federal election in April 2019, large-scale surveys do provide us with a nationally representative picture of teachers' views of their profession. TIMSS includes questions about job satisfaction in its teacher questionnaire, and the data extracted from these can be used to shine some light onto what contributes to job satisfaction. This Snapshot examines Year 4 and Year 8 mathematics and science teachers' job satisfaction from TIMSS 2015 data and some potential aspects of schools and teaching environments that may impact on it. [Australia's participation in TIMSS 2015 was managed by the Australian Council for Educational Research and funded by commonwealth, state and territory governments.]
