Action to get more specialist teachers

Yesterday the Prime Minister announced a new levelling up premium to boost and retain the number of specialist teachers, making a real difference to schools across the country as we build back better.

  • Disadvantaged schools are more likely to face teacher supply and retention issues – we are determined to correct that by offering targeted investment for teachers to drive up quality.
  • That is why the PM announced a new levelling up premium worth up to £3,000 per teacher – which will support the recruitment and retention of specialist teachers in shortage subjects and in the schools and areas that need them most.
  • As we level up and build back better from the pandemic, this will help to boost school standards so that every child can get the world class education they deserve.
