Demystifying the supply teacher industry.

This report looks into the current state of play across the country in regards to schools' use of supply teachers. Primary sourced information is then introduced from data collected across Hampshire schools.

Part 4

The Solution

The final summary will draw on all three of the previous pieces in an attempt to provide an academically viable solution to the education sector in regards to sourcing cover staff.

About the Writer

I have always been heavily involved within the education sector, as a qualified teacher, a PGCE student and as a supply teacher. Because of this I am extremely passionate about enhancing it in any way possible.
Through this academic research, supported by membership to the Hampshire Enterprise Circle, I endeavour to demystify this often forgotten element of education.
