Support for Teacher Recruitment & Retention

With Insight's systemic and on-the-ground supports, gain traction on your most important teacher recruitment and retention priorities.

There are many daunting challenges facing schools and districts when it comes to recruiting and retaining effective teachers. A teacher shortage with not enough graduates from schools of education entering the teaching workforce, a competitive job market, and more choice than ever on where teachers can teach or work—just to name a few.

But there is hope. By prioritizing recruitment and retention in a new, systemic way, districts and schools are experiencing increased success in finding and retaining those teachers their students desperately need.

Insight offers several supports to help your school or district build your teacher recruitment and retention systems.

In order to prepare your next recruitment season, start with unpacking where your district and schools stand with recruitment and retention, including what’s working and what’s not, so you can attract and keep more highly effective teachers.

Insight conducts deep, impartial assessments of district and school recruitment (and retention) systems. The reviews are living processes by teaming with district leaders, principals, teachers, and other educators to conduct a root-cause analysis and translate evidence directly into action.

Based on the five characteristics of an effective recruitment system and 10 steps for effective recruitment, the review looks at policy, practice, and resource allocation for an effective recruitment system.

  • Identifying the types of candidates you want to attract
  • Refreshing your website with language, testimonials, and photos to inform candidates and to increase your presence in Google searches
  • Creating videos that speak to ideal candidates and showcase what your district offers
  • Creating brochures and other print materials
  • Creating social media campaigns to bring awareness to your district's teaching opportunities
  • Planning and promoting events, such as webinars, district-based job fairs, and more
  • Create and manage campaigns for job posting sites
  • And much more to get you to your recruitment goals!
