The forecast teacher shortage is already here
says Darryl Mydat of TLTP
Responding to Shadow Education Secretary Stephen Twigg’s assertion that the UK is heading for a huge teacher shortage, Darryl Mydat, MD of leading specialist education recruitment agency TLTP (The London Teaching Pool) warns, “The shortage is already here and it’s only going to get worse.
“In the past our task was to find suitable schools in which to place our excellent candidates; now we’re finding it much harder to find candidates of the quality that we need. This is already a UK wide problem; we work closely with colleagues in Birmingham, Manchester and other major cities and they are all facing the same situation – it’s a complete reversal of how things used to be, even 12 months ago.”
On the 21st March, Meridian Business Support attended the Onrec Awards 2013, where they won the Best Online Candidate Experience Award for their continual development of the Meridian Business Support website and the online resources they supply to help candidates find jobs. Online resources include a Jobseeker section and email job alerts.
Congratulations to Meridian from all at The Supply Teacher.
Step Teacher's new office opened 13th March 2013. Danny, Adam and Michaela are now based in Office 15 of the Wingate Business Exchange, Clapham. The staff stepped out in style for a celebratory meal at the lovely Bodean's restaurant before returning to their new location ready to help schools find their perfect supply teachers, and vice versa!
