Welcome to the page for the Teaching Experience Project.
Recruitment is a real challenge facing schools, but we want to begin to build a steady pipeline of teachers for future years in Ipswich. By encouraging and providing opportunities for undergraduates, graduates and career changers to participate in meaningful teaching experience in our local area, we can demonstrate clearly the significant rewards that a career in teaching can bring.
We are working closely with local teacher training providers, schools, students, Suffolk County Council and other stakeholders in order to improve local recruitment opportunities and increase retention.
We also hope to keep schools in the know: schools who participate in our various projects will have a better understanding of who will be training to be a teacher in the next few years, leading to more positive recruitment contacts.
