Teacher recruitment chairs

A new white paper, Driving the Performance Agenda in Education, from Affinity Workforce, explores steps that school and MAT leaders are taking in order to tackle the teacher recruitment and skills crisis, and to attract high-quality teaching staff.

As many as 85% of school and MAT heads report that they regularly compromise or deviate from their original recruitment specification simply in order to get teachers in to fill vacant positions. Examples of this include compromising on qualifications and skills (46%), cultural fit (44%), experience (44%), or subject specialism (44%).
