15 April 2016The 2016 Secondary Teacher Census is open until Friday 22 April at teacherscount.education.govt.nz

For example, it may show secondary school teachers which specialities will be most valued in the future, and help them plan their career and further professional development.
If you have taught in a secondary school at any time since the beginning of 2013, you are able to participate in the census.
