NYES Resourcing Solutions and North Yorkshire HR’s excellence in the Education Sector has been recognised nationally; they have been awarded Best HR/OD Evidence Based Improvement Programme for their work with Education partners in North Yorkshire Coastal region by the PPMA (Public-Sector Personnel Management Association).
With a rapidly changing educational landscape and added geographical and localised pressure in schools on the North Yorkshire coast, recruitment and retention of teachers is key to address social mobility of young people and to positively impact on their future. By gaining a detailed understanding of overall school challenges and workforce needs, and through complete campaign management with candidate engagement from start to finish, the project has enabled schools to recruit more effectively first time, and develop a bank of talent to meet the predicted demand for teachers on the coast.
Within the first year the support provided has resulted in 62 vacancies filled with 58 of them filled first time, over £18k saved in advertising costs and approx. £350k per term supply agency costs avoided and 17 teachers have been recruited from outside of the area. Underpinned by succession planning, focused professional development to develop leadership skills for future roles and partnership working, this dual project has delivered sustainable solutions for schools on the North Yorkshire Coast.
Based on this success Resourcing Solutions have also been selected as Doncaster Opportunity Area Recruitment partner to improve recruitment and retention of teachers.
PPMA recognised Resourcing Solutions and North Yorkshire HR for their wider contribution to Public Sector excellence in HR/OD:
