It’s well documented that we’re experiencing a teacher recruitment and retention crisis. Yesterday, the Department for Education set out a new strategy to help attract more teachers and stop those in the profession from leaving.
They say that for a world-class workforce in education to flourish we must:
- Get the balance right between holding schools to account and helping them to improve;
- Make the job manageable again, eradicating unnecessary workload and developing arrangements that support flexible working; and
- Invest in and embed school cultures that create a sense of value through ongoing professional development.
They believe that the new strategy will help to create these conditions and that they are fully committed to playing their part in delivering it. Download the strategy here >
