Incentive programmes for the recruitment and retention of teachers in FE

This research, commissioned by the DfE and carried out by CooperGibson Research, aimed to identify the strategies or incentives which may most effectively drive recruitment and retention of FE teachers. A key finding was that although financial incentives may help drive recruitment, high-quality mentoring and support are key to retention.

The evidence from the literature review and telephone discussions suggests that high-quality mentoring and support should feature:

  • Sustained, active mentoring programmes to support new teachers whilst they embed their training and develop their teaching skills.
  • Continued support and cross departmental mentoring to fill skills gaps, such as the use of technology in teaching.
  • A strong CPD programme with multiple opportunities for progression and personal development.
