- Education Professionals
This episode of Careerwise focuses on male primary school teachers. Why are they in such short supply? What does this shortage mean for the profession? And what can be done to resolve the problem?
We take a trip to Franche First School, in Kidderminster that employs twice the national average of male teachers. We hear from students, teachers and parents, who each offer a valuable insight into what difference male teachers can make to a school.
Presenter Peter Curran is joined in the studio by education expert Jill Clough and Mike Watkins, head of recruitment at the TDA, to discuss how more men can be brought into the teaching profession and why many are loath to sign up in the first place.
