Now Teach has shown early promise in attracting professional late-stage career changers into teaching, who would not be typically attracted into the profession. 47 trainees began the two-year recruitment and retention programme in September 2017 and 43 remain on the programme.

The programme will undergo an independent evaluation as part of the terms of the department’s grant funding.
