There’s been much in the recent news about a shortfall in teacher numbers in the UK, with recent figures estimating the shortfall at 30,000.
Additionally, one in four English schools could face operating without a head, deputy or assistant Head Teacher as some senior staff leave the profession early and others are parachuted out to work at academy trusts.
