Keith is seriously concerned about teacher recruitment and retention in Barnet
Keith Nason, Secretary of Barnet NUT is getting serious concerned about teacher recruitment and retention. Nationally 40% of teachers have left the profession within five years. This is caused by a mixture of excessive workload and bureaucracy (which has increased drastically under this government), undermining of the profession by politicians and very high housing costs in Barnet.
Remember teachers in neighbouring Brent, Camden and Haringey all pay Inner London pay although even that is not enough for London housing prices. In Barnet, we have a drastically increasing school population but now we have schools with vacancies they cannot fill (including a number schools having to rely on interim heads and SENCos). How can we recruit the extra teachers needed if we can't recruit enough now?
