Tes is committed to helping support and connect teachers. We are proud to provide a platform that allows teachers to publish resources to share with the education community all around the world.

The latest TES Teacher Recruitment Index report tracks how successful secondary schools in England have been at recruiting, by subject and region. We found that schools filled a higher proportion of vacant posts during the Easter 2016 period than in any Easter period since 2012. However, the index also highlighted that schools are less happy with the calibre of teaching candidates, down from 79 per cent in 2015 to 71 per cent now. So despite some success with recruitment, there are growing worries this rise is at the expense of teacher quality. What can schools do to help combat the quality issue and attract top talent?
