Data Project - How CaSPA data compares to Australian Principals

As you may be aware, the Commonwealth Department of Education conducted a survey late in 2016 and invited all Australian School Principals to take part.  The results of this survey are now available and may be downloaded at this link.

Some key points of comparison would include:

  • The Australian Survey invited almost 10,000 principals from all sectors and levels of school of whom around 900 responded
  • There is a marked difference in the gender balance with the national sample seeing 55% of principals being female compared to 36% of CaSPA Principals
  • The average current age of CaSPA Principals is just on 55 years compared to the national sample which would see the average age being approximately 54 year
  • CaSPA Principals would appear to come to the role later in their careers after approximately 24 years of teaching experience - at age of approx 46 years
    • The national sample sees Principals being appointed on average after just 18.4 years of teaching - in their early 40's

Below we have included some key data our CaSPA Principals have provided in recent months
