Key Points
  • Training - Creating a Sustainable and Highly Qualified Profession:Reviewing the current distribution of providers in ITT and how well they are placed in providing sustainable and the most highly qualified teachers across subjects, from both school-led and higher education institution-led routes.
  • Recruitment - Creating Pathways into the Profession and Improving the Image of Teaching: Practical insights from the education sector in driving recruitment across regions, subjects and phases and the dissemination of best practice from different voices in the field. The panel will also include a more detailed discussion on how to improve the image of teaching and how perceptions can be addressed through policy and the school context.
  • Retention - Stemming the Decline in the Teaching Workforce and Addressing Low Morale:As one of the most salient issues facing the education sector for the foreseeable future, we look at practical solutions that can be taken in the short-term to retain a talented workforce, from discussions on the workload challenge, CPD, well-being and job satisfaction.

Overview
With a growing feeling that the supply of teachers is facing more pressures than ever before, the need to implement strategies and school led approaches for the immediate future become all the more necessary. The platform will provide the opportunity to dissect the key components and channels that are vital ingredients in not only creating, but also sustaining a motivated and high-quality teaching workforce.

Following on from our popular 2016 forum on Initial Teacher Training (ITT), we will now take on the issue of recruitment and the retention of teachers, which continues to be a key challenge facing schools across the country today.

In the aftermath of the Education Committee’s inquiry into the Supply of teachers in 2015, the Committee published a pertinent report specifically on the theme of Recruitment and retention of teachers in February 2017. We dwell deeper into its practical implications and the pathways that lie ahead, from a variety of expert voices in the field, whether it be at the initial stages of training though to recruiting and retaining teachers.
