Committee report finds school teacher shortage.
In order to raise the status of the teaching profession, and improve retention, teachers must be entitled to high-quality, relevant continuing professional development throughout their careers. This must include a focus on subject-specific knowledge and skills to allow teachers to continually develop their practice and to create future leaders. The College of Teaching will play an important role in this, and we will continue to support and monitor its development. The Government should consider targeted funding and a central statement of annual entitlement for continuing professional development.
