LAMSIG PCE 2024 - ATTENDING IN PERSON: Teacher recruitment and retention: From strategy to day-to-day operations

Join IATEFL Leadership and Management Special Interest Group (LAMSIG) for their 2024 in person Pre-Conference Event on 15 April 2024 - Teacher recruitment and retention: From strategy to day-to-day operations

Finding and retaining the right teachers for your organization is critical to the overall success of academic programs and growth of the institution. It is, however, not the easiest task to find the best teachers, develop their skills, and to provide an environment that encourages them to stay at your organization and grow with you. This one-day workshop will look at: 

  • Strategy and planning for best practice in the recruitment and retention of staff
  • Day-to-day operational requirements, focusing on teacher recruitment, development, and retention

Throughout the day, we will have sessions led by industry experts, followed by workshops where participants can expect to:

  • Discuss ideas for best practice
  • Learn from other contexts and managers
  • Leave with ideas to build an effective teacher recruitment and retention strategy
