The DfE are hosting an event in the North and would like to invite you to join them.
The DfE want to share with teachers across the country some of the things they’ve learnt, learn what’s worked and what hasn’t, and hear from you what should be done to improve teacher recruitment and retention.
In particular, they 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 that 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, they are keen to hear your views on areas including professional development, flexible working and entry routes into teaching and how they can be improved.
The DfE will be hosting two events in the North: at The Academy at Shotton Hall, Peterlee on Wednesday 4th July and Churchill Community College, Wallsend on Tuesday 10th July.
These events mark one of the first stages of work they are doing to develop a new teacher recruitment and retention strategy. The strategy will set out the next steps the Department and others in the sector need to take to improve teacher recruitment and retention and ensure teaching remains an attractive profession.
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.
