More education graduates are needed to head off a growing demand for teachers in Australian schools, Australian Catholic University (ACU) said recently.

An ageing teaching workforce combined with an increase in school student numbers over the next decade meant more, not fewer education graduates were needed. 

There is an expectation from the Commonwealth government that Australian schools will face a large influx of students over the next eight years, with an additional 670,000 enrolments over that period.
