Schools

The retention crisis in education has resulted in schools facing greater challenges than ever in recruiting and retaining teaching staff.

Through our unique two-phase programme, our aim is to create a pipeline of trainees who are committed to teaching as a long-term career, remain with the schools they train with, and develop their practice with care and consideration.

We help schools address their recruitment and retention challenges by placing trainees within existing vacancies at the school. By filling a position, your school will simultaneously invest in a staff member who will be shaped to align with your school's ethos.

Our goals are simple: to address the retention crisis in teaching, cultivate a generation of teachers committed to high-quality practice, and reduce unnecessary spending in schools.
