Around one-third of school leaders who use The Key do so for support with recruitment and retention and in the 2016 State of Education survey, more than six in ten said (62%) said they found recruiting and retaining teachers difficult to manage over the last twelve months. For additional information and guidance, school leaders may be interested in seeing The Key's article on staff retention or its articles on recruitment and induction (log-in required).
