National Teaching Service pilot gets underway

On January 29th 2016, Secretary for Education Nicky Morgan announced that talented teachers and middle leaders are being invited to apply to join the National Teaching Service (NTS) and work in schools across the North West, which are having trouble retaining teaching professionals. The national teaching service will see 1500 of the country’s top teaching professionals matched to the schools which need them most by 2020.

This comes under the government’s mission to extend opportunity to every child through spreading educational excellence.

The initial pilot scheme has been launched in the North West which aims to find up to 100 teachers who are eligible to work in primary and secondary schools across the region from September 2016.

Included in this offer are a range of incentives including:

  • Help to relocate and/or temporary accommodation or commuting costs.
  • Access to leadership development programmes for primary leaders or the National Professional Qualification for middle and senior leaders.
  • Leadership development and training delivered by a local Teaching School Alliance.
  • Access to coaching and mentoring.
