Bradford teachers spearhead teacher recruitment campaign in the area

Ten teachers and school leaders in Bradford are heading up a campaign to improve teacher recruitment and retention in the area.

Funded by Bradford council and coordinated by the Northern Lights Teaching School Alliance, the Bradford for Teaching campaign will promote opportunities to train and work in the area across social media.

As part of the campaign, 10 teaching ambassadors will share their own experiences of teaching in Bradford and the impact their work is having on pupils.

“Bradford is an exceptional community: diverse, ambitious and culturally rich. It is a city which deserves teachers who are truly values driven and want to make a difference,” said one of the ambassadors, Luke Sparkes, the executive principal of Dixons Trinity Academy.

Bradford council has committed to invest £660,000 over three years into recruitment, and recently arranged bus tours to take teacher-training students into local schools.
