Strategy for recruiting and retaining school teachers is a positive step forward

Andrew Goff, ex-teacher and Director of ONVU Learning

Following this morning’s Government announcement that the Department of Education has shared their strategy for recruiting and retaining school teachers in state-funded schools, teacher training and retention expert Andrew Goff, ex-teacher and Director of ONVU Learning, provides some insight:

Retention is a well-publicised problem in the education sphere with retention rates of early career teachers consistently falling over the past 5 years.

The strategy announced today by the government will be very much welcomed by schools as a positive step forward. It outlines important factors needed for change such as increasing support structures and creating shifting current teacher cultures.

Damian Hinds, BESA, and other stakeholders have impressed upon the education sector how important emerging education technology is going to be for time-pressed, budget-conscious schools.

It falls to private enterprise to share methods for solutions to these challenges like the remote teacher coaching practices developed with our partner schools, and to demonstrate how sharing technologies can make the teacher training and process more efficient.
