Details

In November 2004 the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) commissioned the Institute for Policy Studies in Education at London Metropolitan University to undertake research into the recruitment, deployment and management of supply teachers in England.

The research aimed to identify good practice in those areas and explored the barriers or incentives that prevented or encouraged supply staff from returning to or joining the permanent teaching sector. This brief summarises the main report.
