not done either for a while but doubt if it has changed..


retention issue was always with the wages we could offer considering the amount of training and responsibility was dire.. staff left as they wanted a 'proper job' with a wage... not a job with 'pin' money and so many unpaid hours.. which was often the reason staff left.


recruitment was the same.. wage not good enough for the commitment needed for the job so even though advertising only had a couple of people apply.. if we were lucky.. we often needed to recruit mums who were able to train to fill the places


and as a setting our hands were tied as income came via the education grant which had to cover everything , wages, holiday pay, national insurance employers contribution, rent, insurance, equipment, materials, food and anything else you can think of. it did not go far with minimum wage always increasing more than the grant was, as was holiday pay due.

Recruitment: lack of suitably qualified candidates available locally in rural areas.


Retention: schools 'poach' our good staff as they can pay more and have better conditions.
