Nearly three-quarters of school leaders say the recruitment situation is worse now than it was a year ago
Nine in 10 secondary schools are struggling to recruit teachers, according to new research that lays bare the extent of the teacher recruitment crisis.
A survey of nearly 900 school leaders by the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL) found that 89 per cent said they were “experiencing difficulties” in recruiting teachers.
And 73 per cent said the recruitment situation was now worse or much worse than it was a year ago.
