Teachers wanted now?

An editorial piece here - because I and I think many of your are more than a bit frustrated. So now the papers are saying that more teachers will be needed? Yet the responses from our students and graduates have been more about the expense and difficulty rather than the ease of getting into post-graducate teaching programmes. Something is not synchronised here - we need more teachers, good people are applying, and less people are getting places (and those places cost more).

  1. Hi Paula,

    Yes it is interesting how they say these things yet are making it more difficult for individuals to study and get into the teaching profession, through increased costs and reducing funding (e.g GTP's). With the governments proposed new requirements for training nurses, it seems that the hospitals are also going to suffer in the future. Yet surely education and hospital are the two most important industries in the country?
