http://www.theguardian.com/education/2015/oct/27/teacher-recruitment-crisis-estelle-morris So - we know the figures, but is it real? I don't teach Maths, English or Science, however back in the early 2000s I could walk into any area, and pick up a job at a school fairly quickly and easily. I have a job, am very happy in it, and don't want to move on, but really don't get the impression I could get the amount of offers now that I did then. So - is there really a crisis in teacher recruitment? Or is it just that the glut is over? Would love to hear opinions, plus experience from people who have actually been out there looking for jobs.
