Effective staff recruitment and retention

Budgets are tight and recruiting and retaining quality teaching staff is difficult. Schools and academies are currently faced with a myriad of obstacles to overcome; there are increasing number of teachers leaving the profession for reasons other than retirement, larger class sizes, tighter budgets and a two per cent pay increase to manage as well as a pension scheme to accommodate.

This session will explore some of these main issues and provide clear and pragmatic advice supported by case studies.

Take home points:
This session will focus on:
  • employee relations casework;
  • advising on teachers’ pay and conditions of service and employment law;
  • leadership recruitment;
  • safeguarding and child protection issues, including the single central register in readiness for that all-important Ofsted inspection.
This session is for:
SBMs – in schools or academies – who are fulfilling a HR role, are struggling to recruit or to retain teaching staff and would like support or have specific HR questions that they would like answered.
