British Teachers To Get Cash, Training Grants To Stay In Profession Under New Scheme

Teachers are to be offered cash and job-share incentives in a bid to encourage them to stick with their jobs, part of British education secretary’s plan to boost the number of teachers in the profession. While sharing a new plan on Monday, Education Secretary Damian Hinds said teachers work “too many hours” and hence should be encouraged with job-related incentives. He said the new measures would attract as well as retain young teachers who currently “carry the burden of unnecessary tasks” as an integral part of their job.
