demand for maths and science teachers grows

15 August 2013

A shortage of maths and science teachers may result in A-Levels being taught by unqualified teachers according to the Telegraph. Some blame the shortage on stagnant wages and the continual negative press around the teaching profession.

So what can schools and academies do to make sure they get first pick? Making the most of three recent policy changes may make some schools appear more attractive - performance related pay, the use of unqualified teaching staff and varying admissions policies to favour the children of staff. This is certainly not the answer to the shortage across the sector, but it may be an answer for schools currently struggling to fill their vacancy.
