Abstract

This paper focuses on the issue of teacher shortages, particularly at entry into the profession, in a range of countries. The purpose of this paper is to outline some of the findings from an international review of the literature which focused upon how different countries were incentivising entry into teaching. The main objective of this paper is to consider the international evidence base concerning the following:

1. Direct incentives to engage students in initial teacher education;
2. Differences in remuneration and conditions between systems;
3. Cultural drivers such as the relative value of the role of teachers in society.

This paper will provide evidence about the incentivisation approaches that are being deployed, internationally, to encourage a better supply of graduates into the profession.
