Full report available: Recruitment and Retention of NQTs in Oxfordshire


From 2pm until 5pm

At Oxford Brookes University (Harcourt Hill Campus)

The full report can be found here: R&R Full Report.


In response to the increasing difficulties faced by schools across the county, the Strategic Partnership Board commissioned research into the experiences of  local schools and of teachers themselves.  Wide-ranging surveys across primary, secondary and special schools (conducted by the University of Oxford and Oxford Brookes University) along with detailed interviews with teachers who have chosen to stay,  offer new insights into the nature of the problem and the most effective practices.  Join us for this half-day conference to:

  • Learn about the findings of the research, in general and as they apply to different types of school

  • Review examples of successful strategies

  • Collaborate with other schools in similar circumstances to devise practical ways of acting on the recommendations

Presentation of the research findings and recommendations will be followed by separate workshops for primary and secondary teachers, identifying phase-specific strategies and solutions. Reports on each workshop will be followed by a panel session combining different perspectives  - including those of special schools and of new teachers themselves.


The conference is intended for all those concerned with the recruitment and retention of high-quality teachers, including: headteachers;  senior leaders with responsibility for recruitment and continuing professional development: induction tutors responsible for NQTs; and governors.


All delegates will be given a summary of the report's main findings and recommendations and a more detailed chapter, relevant to their particular school type (primary, secondary, special). 


Cost £75 per delegate* (free for all Oxfordshire state schools)
