Recruitment and retention

Great team morale, the scope for career development, an inspirational teaching environment and a clear sense of pride and purpose are all qualities that will support your ability to recruit and retain the right staff.  Of course, it’s also vital to have the right blend of skills and competencies to help your school fulfil its objectives for delivering a first-class education for pupils and its aspirations for the future. It’s not just a case of having clear recruitment and retention strategy that is right for your school. It is also essential to demonstrate the value of this strategy and to adopt efficient processes, insight and performance reviews to help maintain momentum at both the individual and collective level.
