From education to employment

Supporting schools with better human resource policies

The staff working in schools are the most important resource for today’s education systems, both educationally and financially.

Strengthening, recognising and preserving the positive impact that teachers, school leaders and other school staff have on students is therefore a key priority for OECD countries:

  • How can policies help to create supportive working environments in schools and foster professional learning, from initial preparation to continuing development?
  • What role do career structures, salary schedules and working conditions play in attracting, retaining and motivating high‑quality school staff?
  • How can school systems match teachers and leaders to schools where they can realise their full potential?

These questions are priorities for policy makers across the OECD, but also for teachers, school leaders and other practitioners.
