Teachers urged to take on a second subject amid recruitment 'crisis' in schools

BUSY teachers are being offered the chance to retrain for free as schools deal with a severe shortage in some areas.
Poole Teacher Specialism Training (PSST) is bringing together several schools in a bid to get more people teaching maths, core maths, modern foreign languages and physics.
Teachers will carry on teaching their own subjects, but will be given time to train in additional subject where recruitment is proving hard.
The initiative involves Poole and Parkstone grammars, Poole High, St Edward’s, Lytchett Minster, Purbeck and Quay schools, as well as the private Yarrells Preparatory School.
