Scouts have been handed a £129,000 government contract to promote teaching as a career pathway to its young members.

The Get into Teaching Candidate Pipeline Strategy aims to tackle teacher sufficiency by increasing the recruitment of young people who may not have considered it as a career.

The strategy focuses on promoting teaching through partnerships to a younger audience, with a focus on areas where recruitment is most challenging, including: science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and modern foreign languages.

Through the three-year partnership, the Department for Education will work with the Scouts’ Explorers groups to provide 44,000 14-to 18-year-olds with knowledge on how to pursue a teaching career.
