The first edition of Idiom for 2024 focuses on English teachers’ responses to the personal and professional challenges of the past few years in Victoria. Key questions for the issue include: 'What is the impact of these challenges on the sustainability of the English teaching profession?'; and 'How are English teachers cultivating imagination, creativity, voice and collaboration in the face of these challenges?' This issue of Idiom reports on findings from a VATE funded research project on the sustainability of the English teaching profession. The issue also includes stories from members about what sustains them, and what stands in the way of professional engagement, fulfilment and being able to manage workload.
