A charity’s calling for men to join the teaching profession in East Sussex.
Teach First are responding to government figures, which show just 27.6% of teachers in the country are male.
Helen O'Connor, Teach First South East and South Coast Director, said, “It is a real loss that the profession is missing out on talented classroom leaders because a huge pool of people is being put off by misconceptions about teaching. Teaching is a hugely challenging and rewarding career, and our young people need role models from all backgrounds to unlock their potential and aspiration, and to help them understand the world.
"If you're looking for a challenge - one where you can use your intelligence and personality to help solve one of the country’s biggest problems - Teach First has a unique opportunity for you. Open an application today.”
