Responding to DfE data showing that teaching vacancies have doubled in two years, NASUWT General Secretary Dr Patrick Roach, said:

“This is yet further damning evidence of a crisis in teacher recruitment and retention caused by the Government’s failure to invest in the teaching profession.

“Experienced teachers and headteachers are leaving prematurely, or seriously considering doing and fewer graduates are choosing to come into teaching.

“Surging levels of workload, excessive working hours and dwindling real-terms pay has made the job increasingly unappealing.

“In the face of the overwhelming and growing evidence of the problem, the Government must face up to the scale of the crisis it has created.”
