Training and Development Agency for Schools

Issue 5 | July 2008

Furthermore they can often demand good salaries and roles in other professions. Recruitment targets in Science were set at a 3% increase for 2006/7 against the previous recruitment year, and DM had to play a constituent part in ensuring Science did not again under recruit. The task of this campaign was to demonstrate the dynamic and interactive nature of teaching Science, as well as reinforce the unique rewards of teaching as a profession.
