Early career teachers' personal wellbeing and professional commitment

Project: Research

Project Description

This longitudinal study examines the influences on early career teachers plans to continue in the profession, and their levels of personal wellbeing. It will examine the sociocultural and organisational aspects of schools that impact negatively on teachers reported job demands, perceived stress and levels of psychological and physical health. The findings will illuminate the demands experienced by early career teachers; their decisions to either remain in, or leave, the teaching profession; and their general health and wellbeing.
