Funding pressures affect teacher recruitment

When it comes to teacher recruitment and retention, two major factors are key. The reputation of the school or academy, and the training on offer.

Great schools exist because of great teachers, so retaining staff is crucial in the fight against falling teacher numbers and rising demand for classroom space. Influential and inspirational teachers attract others into the profession – but if there is no budget to offer the correct training, is there still room to grow?

New research conducted by the Teacher Development Trust shows that there are up to 20,000 teachers in the UK who do not have access to the funding required to offer them further training or continuing professional development (CPD).

David Weston, chief executive of the Teacher Development Trust, will be speaking at The Academies Show London on April 26th 2017, delivering a presentation on teacher training alongside Andrew Alsbury of the Chartered College of Teaching.

Their session, entitled ‘Creating a Framework for Effective Teacher Professional Development’ will cover:

  • Creating a platform for sharing knowledge, teacher-led professional standards and a professional code of ethics
  • Promoting collaboration and leadership that builds on trust and agency
  • Professional development impact on improving and evaluating pupil outcomes
  • How professional development can transform teaching practices and raise pupil attainment
