Island advertises to attract teachers

The benefits of teaching on the Island will be advertised on an online streaming service.

The Government is using ITV Player to promote the Isle of Man as a desirable place for teachers to work.

The move comes after Education and Children Minister Graham Cregeen recently revealed there are 37 unfilled teaching posts in Manx schools.

The Government has also set up a recruitment page with a UK employment agency promoting the rent subsidies, relocation packages and other subsidies offered to teachers who come to the Island.
