We are fast approaching the end of summer holidays and many teachers are turning their attention to preparing for the start of the school year. Many of the teachers who started their careers in 2017 will not return to the classroom in 2018. In fact, over 40% of teachers leave the profession within the first five years. Many of those who remain are left feeling burnt out, unsupported and undervalued in their work.
