GPC paper declares workforce 'crisis point' as training places increase by only 80


The same thing is happening in teaching in some secondary subjects. Failure to recruit enough PGCE students, followed by an enormous drop out rate and more people choosing not to teach at the end of the course or leaving after a couple of years. Currently about half of maths PGCE students fail to teach more than a couple of years. And these students receive grants for their training and golden hellos.
