We are also testing new financial incentives for priority subject teachers. These include early-career payments for new maths teachers and a student loan reimbursement scheme for languages and science teachers.</p><p> </p><p>On 28 January 2019 the Department launched the Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy which outlines 4 key areas for reform and investment: create the right climate for leaders to establish supportive school cultures, transform support for early career teachers, build a career offer that remains attractive to teachers as their careers and lives develop, and make it easier for great people to become teachers.</p><p>Designed collaboratively with the sector, the centrepiece of the strategy is the Early Career Framework, which will underpin a fully-funded, two-year package of structured support for all early career teachers linked to the best available research evidence.

star this property answer text <p>In January 2019 the Department launched the Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy which outlines four key areas for reform and investment. These include creating the right climate for leaders to establish supportive school cultures, transforming support for early career teachers, building a career structure that remains attractive to teachers as their careers develop, and making it easier for people to become teachers.</p><p> </p><p>Designed collaboratively with the education sector, the strategy commits the Government to creating the strongest development and progression opportunities for teachers working in the schools and areas that need them most. The full strategy can be found here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/teacher-recruitment-and-retention-strategy" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/teacher-recruitment-and-retention-strategy</a>.</p><p> </p><p>As part of this, the Department is piloting two new financial incentives which encourage individuals to teach in disadvantaged areas. The Department is offering two uplifted mathematics early career payments of £7,500 rather than £5,000 to those who complete initial teacher training (ITT) and go on to teach in 39 high-need local authorities. It is also piloting teachers’ student loan reimbursement for languages and science teachers in 25 high need local authorities.</p><p>The Department is also investing more in challenging areas to create enhanced development and progression opportunities. For example, the Department is investing £20 million in scholarships to drive take up of the reformed leadership national professional qualifications in the most challenging areas.</p><p>The Department’s investment in Teach First (TF) also supports recruitment for schools in disadvantaged areas. The department funds TF to deliver an employment based route into teaching, with trainees completing a two year leadership development programme. It is a premium route into teaching, attracting high calibre trainees into the profession. In 2016/17, 93% of TF trainees had a 2:1 or above, compared with 73% across post graduate routes. These high quality trainees are placed in schools in disadvantaged areas that might otherwise struggle to attract this quality of applicant.</p><p>The Department recognises that some schools have greater issues with recruitment and retention than others. That is why it is delivering a £30 million investment in tailored support to get more great teachers into schools in disadvantaged areas that are facing challenges with teacher supply.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department has worked closely with the teaching profession to develop the early career framework (ECF). Teachers and academics with expertise in supporting special educational needs and disability (SEND) pupils were closely involved in the design of the ECF. The framework has at its centre approaches that support the needs of all pupils including those pupils with the four areas of need set out in the SEND Code of Practice</p><p><br> Drawing on the ECF, the Department’s intention is to procure the development of high-quality curricula and materials which can help schools to put in place effective support and training for the early career teachers. The Department will continue to engage the sector as plans develop to ensure the policy is delivered successfully.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The data collected via the School Workforce Census shows that full time equivalent teacher numbers in special schools have risen by 2,900 between 2010 and 2017 (19%).</p><p> </p><p>However, the Department recognises that some schools, including special schools, are facing challenges in recruiting and retaining teachers. That is why in January 2019 the Department launched the Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy, which outlines four key areas for reform and investment. These include creating the right climate for leaders to establish supportive school cultures, transforming support for early career teachers, building a career structure that remains attractive to teachers as their careers and lives develop, and making it easier for people to become teachers.</p><p>Designed collaboratively with the sector, the centrepiece of the strategy is the Early Career Framework (ECF), which will underpin a fully funded, two year package of structured support for all early career teachers. The ECF draws on the best available research evidence and has been designed around the most effective forms of professional development for improving teacher retention for early career teachers. The strategy can be found here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/teacher-recruitment-and-retention-strategy" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/teacher-recruitment-and-retention-strategy</a>.</p><p>For the 2019/20 recruitment cycle, the Department is taking forward the successful recruitment strategies from the last cycle, including boosting our marketing and support to applicants, providing generous bursaries for priority subjects, making it easier to take the skills test, and working with providers to ensure we are accepting every applicant who is ready to train to teach.</p><p>The Department is also addressing the issues that teachers cite as reasons for leaving the profession, by continuing to work extensively with unions, teachers and Ofsted to challenge and remove unhelpful practices that create unnecessary workload.</p><p> </p>
