I ended the day at the Shortage Subjects Trainee Teachers Recruitment Event at the Park Plaza Hotel...

I had been asked by my colleague Rachael Dearns to talk to these young potential mathematics, science, modern foreign languages and ICT teachers about Education Leeds and our vision for learning. The trainee teachers also were able to attend subject-specific workshops, learn about NQT induction, writing applications and interview techniques. They were also given the opportunity to meet our teaching supply agencies and some headteachers and colleagues from schools.

Rachael and the team had organised another brilliant event which this year attracted around 90 potential colleagues in specific shortage areas in our secondary schools. I hope that it means that we will be joined by some wonderful new colleagues in September.
