THE Government continues to claim that there is not a looming recruitment crisis in schools and yet last year 9 in 10 of you said you expected it to be harder to find staff this year.
SCHOOLS NorthEast has repeatedly made the case that more support is needed to grow the talent pool for schools in the region.
The Department for Education has previously published worrying statistics regarding a shortfall in trainee teachers and in the past week has dropped plans to run a National Teaching Service to support schools in deprived areas.
We need your help to evidence the need within schools. Please take a few minutes to complete this short survey and provide more insight into school recruitment in the North East.
At your request, we have also taken practical steps to support you with recruitment and to reduce the cost of advertising posts. SCHOOLS NorthEast launched the region’s most cost-effective recruitment portal in January 2016. For one small annual fee, as little as £150/year for partner Primary Schools and £400 for partner Secondary Schools, you can advertise unlimited teaching and non-teaching vacancies.
