How experienced career-changers into teaching can benefit our schools

Festival Keynote | How experienced career-changers into teaching can benefit our schools

Session description: We’ve learned from our career-changers that they can bring value and experience to students, schools, leadership teams and the wider system in a number of ways. Their career needs and expectations may be different, but supporting this demographic pays off. Lucy Kellaway chairs a discussion with three Now Teach career-changers and the head of a MAT to explore the impact that career-changers can have in schools.

Delivered in partnership with Now Teach
