Publication date


NFER’s annual Teacher Labour Market report series, funded by the Nuffield Foundation, aims to monitor the progress the school system is making towards meeting the teacher supply challenge by measuring the key indicators and trends of teacher supply and working conditions. This second annual report presents data from a range of sources, which together highlight the trends that describe the teacher supply situation, up to 2018/19.
Recruitment and retention trends suggest that teacher supply in England is very likely to remain an important issue over the next few years. There are some early signs of progress, but the trends are a sharp reminder that the profession is facing many challenges attracting and keeping teachers in our school.
