EPI report on teacher labour market: AoC responds

20 May 2019

In response to the Education Policy Institute’s (EPI) report into teacher retention and recruitment, David Corke, Director of Policy at the Association of Colleges, said: “A major part of the AoC case for better funding to Government is to allow the reward packages to be competitive. Every institution wants to attract and retain the best people, but it is clear that cuts to FE funding over the last decade have disproportionately hit colleges, impacting directly on their ability to reward staff. “Bursaries and initiatives like TeachFirst are great but we need an FE relevant initiative – as per the manifesto commitment made by Government.”
