Have your say on teacher recruitment and retention

We are hosting events in the North East and would like to invite you to join us. 

We want to hear what you think should be done to improve teacher recruitment and retention. 

In particular, we want to find out more about:

  • the recruitment and retention challenges you have experienced,
  • what your school and/or Trust is doing to tackle some of these issues,
  • the things you know work, and
  • your ideas for other solutions we should consider 

The events will include workshops and discussions, and aim to provide teachers with an opportunity to help shape the Department’s policy development. In particular, we are keen to hear your views on areas including professional development, flexible working and entry routes into teaching and how they can be improved. 

We will be hosting two events in the North East; at The Academy at Shotton Hall in Peterlee on Wednesday 4 July and Churchill Community College in Wallsend on Tuesday 10 July

There will also be a number of opportunities for you to share your views with the department in the Autumn term. 

These events are an opportunity to ensure all the different people and organisations that have a role to play in teacher recruitment and retention can work together and make a genuine contribution to the development of the department’s work.
