CITY regions should use new devolved powers to attract teachers to their area
06 Mar 2015
The Policy Exchange suggests that combined authorities could create area-wide relocation packages to boost the recruitment and retention of teachers.
It also says teachers starting in state schools or teacher training from this September should have their student loans paid off by the Government while they remain in the profession.
As part of its Education Manifesto published today, the centre-right think tank identifies “twin risks” of already declining teacher numbers and the potential for graduates who have paid higher tuition fees being put off a potentially lower paid career in public service.
It suggests all parties should commit to a scheme of student loan repayments for some or all teachers who begin teaching in the state sector.
