Numeracy and literacy tick for teacher ed grads

Nearly all (92 per cent) of 2017 teacher education graduates have literacy and numeracy skills that put them in the top third of Australians. Education Minister Simon Birmingham released the results of the second year of tests yesterday. They are marginally down on 2016 scores and Senator Birmingham reminds course providers that it is “critical” that they “are doing everything possible to help teacher graduates succeed and become effective teachers.”

So how are institutions going? Check the results at the end of this morning’s issue.
