Event description
Strategic approaches to improve teacher retention: what does the evidence tell us?

About this Event

The quality of our schools is determined by the quality of our teachers. That means there is nothing more important than making sure that our best teachers feel well supported and motivated to continue in their jobs. Afterall, it is easier to retain good quality staff, than to try to recruit new ones.

This strategic summit is for school leaders and HR leads. Its purpose is to examine the evidence around teacher retention to help school leaders create or refine their own teacher retention strategy, to keep more high quality teachers in the profession for longer.

We have brought together some of the best national speakers on teacher retention issues to offer their views and ideas in a morning of discussion, together with one of the best facilitators in the education sector to guide us through a packed session.

With inputs from: Professor Sam Twiselton (Director, Sheffield Institute of Education); Jack Worth (Lead Economist at the National Foundation for Educational Research) and Dr Rob Loe (Director, Relational Schools Foundation, Cambridge). Facilitated by Jane Creasy (Visiting Senior Lecturer, UCL Institute of Education).

Discuss & Debate

There will be plenty of opportunity to explore your own teacher retention challenges. The session will include regular discussion slots to interrogate the evidence presented by speakers and to consider what it might mean in our own schools. If you have one, bring your own teacher recruitment and retention strategy and use the session to develop and refine it.

Who should attend?

The summit will be most useful to senior school leaders who are part of an SLT, or who have specific responsibility for teacher recruitment and retention. In larger MATs, central staff with responsibility for the workforce are likely to find the session useful too. The summit is free for anyone.

Coming Next

This is the first of two recruitment and retention summits organised by Bradford for Teaching. A second summit in December 2019 will focus specifically on the evidence base surrounding teacher recruitment. More news soon!
