Teacher's Pay Review notes 'high housing costs' as problem

Recommended Posts

From today's review of teachers pay, even the government's own review body can see that it is the cost of housing which means salaries (this applies to private and public sector) struggle to meet the cost of living.

"2.23 Several of our consultees’ submissions addressed factors associated with recruitment challenges. School leaders responding to NAHT’s survey reported that they were experiencing continued problems with recruitment and identified an overall shortage of teachers and the suitability of staff applying for vacancies as the main causes. The survey also found an increase in the number of respondents citing high housing and living costs as the reason for teacher recruitment and retention difficulties, with 60% of respondents in London attributing their recruitment difficulties to these factors. NEOST had consulted with its members who reported increasing recruitment difficulties at all levels and particularly in London and the South East and in specific subject areas: maths; English; science; business studies; and modern foreign languages. The NGA reported that its annual survey, conducted jointly with TES6, had found the three regions in which governors reported the most difficulties in attracting good candidates to teaching posts were London, the South East and the East of England.
