Although the national teacher vacancy rate remains low, we are aware that schools in some parts of the country are finding it more challenging to recruit teachers, particularly as the economy improves. Our recent White Paper, Educational Excellence Everywhere, sets out our plans to ensure that there are good teachers everywhere they are needed. This includes the launch of the National Teaching Service which will, by 2020, place up to 1,500 outstanding teachers and middle leaders in the schools that struggle most to recruit and retain good teachers.
Last year the Prime Minister announced that we would be spending up to £67m on teacher training and development in priority STEM subjects. This includes training an additional 2,500 maths and physics teachers, and improving the subject knowledge of a further 15,000 non-specialist serving teachers in those subjects.
