Keeping good teachers in the classroom is more important than ever as teacher shortage seems to increase and become a major problem. Not having a teacher or having high teacher turnover is undermining quality education and is a real barrier to address inequity in education – which Teach for Belgium strives to address. Teach for Belgium pays enormous attention to retaining the teachers through a well-developed support system , resulting in high teacher retention. In this presentation we will share with you how we do this, its effects and shortfalls. You will hear first-hand testimony from Annemie, a TfB teacher about how she experienced this support first-hand. We will also try-out some approaches with you. There will be time for discussion, and we would love to hear your comments, insights, and ideas.
