Calls for more locals to turn to FE teaching to curb great job migration

New research from PwC has revealed that one in five UK workers are likely to change jobs in the next year.

Data released by the DfE among 2,000 employed adults, which shows that in the South East:

  • Almost half (47%) of current employees in the South East would consider teaching in further education.
  • Findings show 71% of people shared their skills during the pandemic, with 61% saying they enjoyed helping others by passing on knowledge and experience.
  • Over a third (32%) of people in the South East say they would like to pass on their skills to others in their field of work, and more than a quarter (26%) of people want to help the next generation – both of which can be achieved through teaching in further education.

The Department for Education has launched a new campaign, calling on those with substantial industry experience to teach in further education and use their expertise and skills to inspire and train the next generation of workers.

Aston spoke to Simon Parker, T-Level lead for construction and engineering at South Essex Collage.
