Teacher motivation and teacher retention are two of the most important aspects of being a leader of education. If schools are to successfully overcome problems with staff recruitment, they need to reflect on their workplace culture. Building a supportive space where teachers can grow and develop is key, and it all begins with the right leadership.
Good leadership skills are key for teacher retention
In order to transform schools and the communities they serve, leaders must drive positive teacher motivation. Not only should there be strategies for employee on-boarding, but managers need to ensure staff feel valued, rewarded and listened to. More importantly, there should be room for professional development in leadership skills if staff retention is the goal.
It’s also important to remember that change takes time. Great leaders should have perseverance and take a long-term view of how staff development should be rolled out.
