COBIS has published new research on Teacher Supply in British International Schools, delivered in partnership with ISC Research Ltd. This research, based on c.1,600 survey responses from senior leaders and teachers, provides concrete data about the profile and motivation of teachers entering and leaving the British international school sector, the quality of their experience, the movement between sectors, the current teacher recruitment climate in international schools, and the impact of Covid-19. Responses were collected between January 2022 and February 2022.
“There’s a sense of pride and accomplishment in knowing that our school is now a COBIS school.”
