The Federal Government released the Teacher Education Ministerial Advisory Group (TEMAG) Report and the Government’s response on Friday February 13th, 2015. Both the TEMAG Report and the Government’s response aim to achieve improvements in both the content and delivery of initial teacher education courses in Australia.
This short 5 minute survey aims to capture the opinion of our membership on a number of ideas presented in the report. We are keen to ascertain “Did the TEMAG get it right?”
Please click here to access the survey. We would be hugely appreciative of your feedback.
