In this programme, Jo Owen visits a headteacher to develop a solution to the very high staff turnover in her school.
Headteacher Chris Kelly of Filsham Valley School has been struggling with recruitment and retention for some time but is not sure how to attack such a complex subject. Could the region's bad communications be to blame, or is it parents' attitudes to education, or the local economic circumstances?
Jo thinks a visit to a construction equipment plant hire company could help Chris to develop a solution to her staffing problem. But what can a business involving trucks and diggers possibly teach a headteacher?
