Is Teaching Still a Valued Profession?
Event 288 • Wednesday 31 May 2017, 5.30pm •
Venue: Oxfam Moot

Heavy workloads, constantly changing government policies, and "media bashing" are just some of the reasons cited in a 2015 survey of new teachers which showed that 73 per cent have considered leaving the profession. How do we make our teachers feel valued and better supported to enable them to educate our children for the future? Jonathan Godfrey OBE is Principal of Hereford Sixth Form College; Professor Green is Vice Chancellor of University of Worcester, from where Cornes recently graduated as a teacher.
