Teaching Personnel is helping school leaders meet current recruitment and retention challenges by helping them facilitate flexible working requests. We are working with school leaders to build cultures which embrace flexible work and, in doing so, help strengthen and diversify their workforce.
Teaching Personnel is helping schools accommodate a range of flexible work scenarios, including:
- Part-time working
- Job sharing
- Phased retirement
- Staggered hours
The benefits of flexible working found that being able to work part-time is seen as the equivalent of a 4 per cent pay rise.
There is a significant amount of evidence which shows that effective flexible working arrangements deliver positive benefits, such as increased employee motivation, commitment, less absenteeism and better employee relations.
A higher headcount through employing some part-time staff, as opposed to full-time staff, increases the breadth of experience and expertise in the school workforce. This creates the opportunity for skill sharing, notably from more experienced staff who may remain in their role longer.”
Flexibility. It's why experienced teachers register with Teaching Personnel.
We attract more experienced teachers than most agencies as we focus on offering flexibility, choice and supporting their continued professional development. When asked, 87% of experienced teachers in shortage areas cited flexibility as a reason for registering with Teaching Personnel.
