NDM6703 - Welsh Conservatives debate

NDM6703 Paul Davies (Preseli Pembrokeshire)

To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:

1. Notes the growing teacher recruitment crisis in maintained schools in Wales. 

2. Regrets that there has been insufficient Welsh Government action to address the causes of this to date. 

3. Calls on the Welsh Government to work with the Education Workforce Council to develop a national school workforce plan for Wales, in order to:

a) remove unnecessary barriers to the recruitment of overseas trained teachers;

b) recognise the skills of experienced and successful teachers working in further education colleges, and in independent schools and colleges by providing them with qualified teacher status; and

c) establish routes into teaching for experienced teaching support assistants in Wales.
