Recruitment and Retention


Recruitment and retention of a high quality school workforce is key to schools providing a high quality education to children, young people and their families, and is a key underpinning strategy to ensure sustained school improvement. The local authority have supported schools in the last few years to address these issues through:

  • The development of strategies to tackle under represented groups in the school workforce
  • The establishment of an NQT Pool
  • Targeted recruitment campaigns to address subject shortage areas
  • Strategies to address retention of school staff
