Teacher conduct and performance (2008-2022)

This publication provides information on teacher dismissals for either proven allegations of misconduct or failing an improvement program in NSW government schools.

Data Notes:

  • The department acts quickly to investigate all allegations of teacher misconduct including allegations of sexual misconduct. Disciplinary or remedial action, which may include dismissal, is taken against a teacher where an investigation finds they have engaged in misconduct.
  • The department has structured procedures for managing underperforming teachers. Teachers identified as experiencing difficulty with their teaching performance are managed in accordance with the procedures. If teachers haven't satisfactory met the requirements for their position, the matter is referred to a decision maker for possible remedial or disciplinary action, which may include dismissal.
  • NTBE refers to the department's 'Not To Be Employed' database.
  • Refer to the individual publication for further information and policy context.
