Abstract

This article explores how the expansion of the Academies Programme and Teach First, combined with a political programme of economic austerity, has repositioned the role and expectations of young teachers since 2010. Specifically, rapid promotion to leadership has become normalised in policy discourse, which has the effect of raising expectations placed on new teachers. It argues that the effects of this repositioning have an impact on both new and experienced teachers, and could be contributing to the current recruitment and retention 'crisis' in teaching.
