Want to READ more Queensland teachers' stories?

If you are considering becoming a teacher, give it a lot of thought!

After having been a secondary teacher for over 30 years, I often wonder why anybody would want to enter this 'profession'.

I understand why the drop out rate for new teachers is huge in the first five years.

Sure, there are some positives, but often the negatives outweigh them when all is considered.

If you are considering entering this job, give it a lot of thought!

Prospective teachers do not see healthy career prospects in Queensland.

There's been an oversupply of education graduates in Queensland, with many getting frustrated and leaving the profession because they can never get more than supply work.

Maybe we need some research into the experiences of education graduates in Queensland?

I think prospective education undergraduates are voting with their feet  because they are not seeing healthy career prospects.

The Queensland teacher transfer system is a problem.

The transfer system for Queensland teachers is a killer regarding attracting young people to teaching.

Prospective teachers in Queensland stand to lose two extra years of income and then be offered a job in some dusty remote location.

Special entry requirements and literacy/numeracy tests for prospective teachers are probably the greatest idea for Queensland schools.

Education students need to really have a passion for teaching.

Without the drive to see students improve, who would put up with the insolence from students, the abuse from parents and the lack of support from principals, the Directors and the seat-polishing politicians?

The salaries (after 5 years study) are no better than those of a 3 year graduate working in industry.

The extra cost of two additional years of training with no financial support is way too much when the reward for losing two years' income (compared to peers) is a job offer in some dusty remote location.

Psychological testing interviews for entry might help.

If you want smarter people to become teachers in Queensland, you will need to increase the pay significantly.

Four years' training to be a teacher is more than enough.

This new five years of teacher-training requirement in Queensland is a waste of time.

The best place to find out if you can cut it in the classroom is in the classroom.

If you want smarter teachers you will need to increase the pay significantly.

You will find there are already plenty of primary, PE, English, History and Creative and Performing Arts teachers.

The "shortage" in Queensland is for Maths, Science and Computing teachers.
