The TES is reporting that more teachers are becoming private tutors…
Almost half of those teachers who make the switch blame the long hours they were asked to work, the research suggests
The number of teachers leaving the profession to become private tutors has increased dramatically – with two-thirds blaming excessive workload, according to new research.
Almost half of those who resign to become tutors do so because of the hours that they have to work, the study suggests.
The survey was carried out by online marketplace Bidvine.com. Russ Morgan, the website’s co-founder, said: “It’s obvious that the UK teaching sector is in a bit of a crisis.”
