(BBC News) New teachers ‘lack secure jobs’
Many newly-trained teachers are struggling to find secure positions in England’s schools, a survey suggests.

Just under 45% of new primary teachers in England found permanent posts, the survey for the Training and Development Agency for Schools says.

This compares with 25% of secondary teachers, says research on 13,000 new teachers who qualified in 2008.

School closures and mergers are thought to be forcing some new teachers to take temporary or supply work.

However, the survey showed that 95% of new teachers were in some form of teaching job.

But there were big regional variations, with only 33% of newly-trained primary teachers finding permanent work in the North East compared to 73% in London.
