The education sector is now being put into a test, with key stakeholders calling for major changes such as revamping the national curriculum, easing budget cuts, restructuring the public school system, improving poor classroom standards, solving staff shortage and even replacing school dinner menus. Among these issues, the rising rate of teacher and school staff shortage are pointed out as one of the most serious and urgent problems that affect today’s state of education.
To offer solutions, one of the premiere UK teaching agencies, Tradewind Recruitment, shares innovative teaching resources such as a daily supply checklist to aid educational institutions fill in the gaps in staff placement, while helping teachers focus on providing an enriching learning experience for all.
The growing fears of acute teacher shortage are not exclusive to the UK, but are also felt by the rest of the global community. The United Nation estimates that 8 million teachers are urgently needed around the world to ensure quality education for children, and this is just for the primary levels. In this number, the UN says 238,700 London teaching jobs and UK school staff posts should be filled in the nation’s primary schools for children to have quality classroom experience by 2015.
However, the alarming discrepancy between retiring teachers and new trainees, as the Key Data on Education in Europe 2012 recently reports, can make this recruitment goal doubly difficult to achieve. Almost 30% of experienced teachers are retiring, but the number of incoming educators may not be enough to fill in the vacancies. The predicament becomes even more glaring in key subjects such as maths, English and physics. Given this climate, more schools are relying on supply teachers to provide quality, relevant instructions on these critical areas.
To ensure supply teachers and teaching assistants fulfill their vital roles more successfully, Tradewind Recruitment equips temporary and permanent candidates with innovative teaching and management tools for their everyday duties. The printable and downloadable Education Daily Supply Checklist is an important resource for making sure supply teachers settle into their position with initiative, commitment, discipline and outstanding proficiency.
The Daily Supply Checklist provides valuable insights and practical suggestions for educators, whether in full-time or part-time teaching jobs, to address issues such as how to manage a classroom of new faces, how to familiarize themselves with school behavior policies, and how to fulfill administrative tasks related to their jobs.
With this helpful resource, Tradewind Recruitment ensures a positive experience for all concerned — teachers, students, parents, and schools — that many of their teachers have been repeatedly requested by client schools due to the impressive feedback they have earned.
As new policies in the school system and new approaches in learning are being explored to address education-related issues, Tradewind Recruitment continues to work hand-in-hand with parents, students, educators and institutions in bringing up another generation of children that are not only highly literate, but also socially aware and eager to make significant contributions to society.
