1 in 4 teachers leave the profession within 2 years of qualification

Over 40% leave within 10 years of qualification

Flight from the profession typically accounts for 40,000 teachers annually

More must be done to resolve the ongoing teacher recruitment and retention crisis.

 

Latest Policy Developments

With new measures being implemented from Autumn 2021, investment in the early education and subsequent professional development of teachers is being presented as one of the solutions to the above worrying statistics.

New measures such as the Early Career Framework (ECF) and Core Content Framework, which provide early career teachers (ECTs) with 3 years of comprehensive teaching guidance, are intended to reform the current teacher training and education processes and contribute to the delivery of world-class initial teacher education and development.

 

Learning objectives

  • Access tailored guidance on meeting your obligations as part of the Early Career Framework reforms to provide Early Career Teachers with the best start to their career
  • Receive guidance on accessing Department for Education funding and support to help you deliver teacher training and development initiatives
  • Learn the importance of effective mentorship at all levels, and how to deliver this in your education setting
  • Discuss how to overcome the barriers to providing various elements of training and CPD requirements, and explore what works well in other schools
  • Establish a structure for evaluating the effectiveness of your training and development initiatives
