To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what support her Department has provided to local authorities to aid recruitment of teachers and temporary supply teachers.
Answer (Nick Gibb)
The Department is in the planning stage of a new commercial framework designed to help schools with the sourcing of supply teachers. The framework will be aimed at providing improved terms and conditions, promoting better agency conduct and offering improved pricing for schools. As part of the development of the framework we have engaged with a variety of stakeholders, including schools and local authorities. It is anticipated that the new supply teacher framework will be available in September 2018.
