    I hadn't realised they were even acting!

    Unless you use the definition of ating as 'pretending'.

    I am sure the DFE will get right onto it.

    I thought Hobby said they could not do much about recruitment because so many schools are autonomous now. Sounds like NAHT are blaming the DFE and the DFE are blaming schools.
    The NAHT should instruct its members to act on the letter sent out by the DFE to cut down on various workload issues like data etc., oh yes schools do not take any notice of letters sent out by the DFE (ceo’s pay) and the NAHT do not instruct their members. A recipe for no change then!

    If I were the DFE I would provide some sort of incentive to attract new entrants to the profession - perhaps a free Cadbury's Cream Egg and one of those LOL dolls.

    Mmmm a little ironic ...it was some heads in the first place who didn't stick by their teachers or the art of teaching. If only some heads had acted sooner rather than grabbing the money, the distant office and the role of 'teacher drainer' in some places - and all whilst some earned a second salary as Exec Ht or otherwise away from their workplace.. :cool:

    So why involve the DFE? As far as funding goes they only have powers to distribute the money passed on by ministers, as far as workload, it's down to heads and their perception of what OFSTED expect next time (which may not be what ofsted are saying they want now). OFSTED go their own way and don't seem to be answerable to anyone.
    Philip Hammond is directly responsible for funding. He seems to hate the idea of public spending. With politics the way it is, I'm not surprised that the Government are trying to avoid long term financial commitments, they have no idea what's coming in six months either.
    However, if we want to build a strong Britain with an educated, skilled workforce, an investment in education is going to be essential, particularly as we don't seem to want to employ people from other countries any more.

    Waiting for profit-based academies to be encouraged by the state.
