Why do secondary teachers leave teaching?

PPTA has started  an ongoing survey to provide annual information from secondary teachers and school leaders on why they leave teaching in New Zealand schools.

This information is not collected by the New Zealand Ministry of Education or any other organisation from those who leave. We believe this information is essential in planning for the future.

Filling in the survey

The survey is for all teachers in classroom, leadership or other roles in state and integrated schools who are leaving the NZ secondary teaching force.

It is for those who have resigned or are resigning from teaching, or who have lost their position (for example through surplus staffing processes).

It is not for teachers who take approved long term leave from their teaching job job or who move to another secondary teaching job in a state or integrated school in New Zealand.

You do not have to be a PPTA member to complete this survey.

When you cease secondary teaching in New Zealand schools for any reason you are asked to complete the survey. If you know someone who is ceasing teaching (or ceased teaching earlier this year) please encourage them to complete it too.

The survey can be completed in five minutes and responses will be anonymous.
