From boardroom to classroom: but for how long?


A combination of the recession and a campaign by the Training and Development Agency has led to a surge in applications to the teaching profession, though there is a suspicion that many may leave and return to their previous roles once the economy starts to improve.

  • How could the Training and Development Agency (the UK body responsible for the recruitment and professional development of teachers) check that candidates are serious in their applications?

  • What are the benefits to the teaching profession of recruiting individuals who have gained experience in industry?

  • What might be the attraction of entering the teaching profession for someone who has spent most of their career within industry or commerce?

  • What should a school be looking for in a candidate: ability to teach the subject or motivation to remain in the teaching profession?

  • Are there any particular manpower planning challenges that are faced by schools?
