Pathways of Care Longitudinal Study (POCLS) is funded and managed by the New South Wales Department of Family and Community Services (FACS). It is the first large scale prospective longitudinal study of children and young people in out-of-home care (OOHC) in Australia. Information on safety, permanency and wellbeing is being collected from various sources. The child developmental domains of interest are physical health, socio-emotional wellbeing and cognitive/learning ability.

This statistical report for the Childcare and School Teacher Survey (Teacher Survey thereafter) provides a summary of the data collected in the Teacher Survey conducted as part of the POCLS. The purpose of this report is to provide a useful reference point for policy officers, frontline workers, teachers and researchers.
