West Suffolk College has teamed up with Suffolk and Norfolk Initial Teacher Training team, to recruit teachers from across the UK and Europe.

A joint advertising campaign will aim to attract ‘the best and brightest graduates to gain professional teaching qualifications in Norfolk and Suffolk’ with the focus on specialised subjects such as maths, physics, chemistry, computing and modern foreign languages.

Geoff Robinson, Suffolk and Norfolk Initial Teacher Training leader, said: “We believe that there is untapped talent in Europe”

“For many years now, teacher training providers up and down the country have found it very challenging to attract top graduates in shortage subjects.”

West Suffolk College has already successfully trialled international recruitment for specialist subjects, like engineering.
