Given that teachers have the greatest in school impacting student outcomes and school leaders have the second greatest impact, building and retaining the best possible school workforce becomes paramount. Developing a deliberate future focused School Workforce Strategy is likely to facilitate building and retaining the best possible school workforce. Generally, a school Workforce Strategy would be informed by the school context, strategic direction, and school workforce data. Ultimately this provides a structure and justification for staffing decisions. In the current local and international context, intentional and impactful teacher and school leader wellbeing programs would be integral in a school Workforce Strategy to contribute to staff retention.
