The National Teaching Service, which aimed to recruit good teachers to work in struggling schools, has been scrapped, the Department for Education (DfE) has confirmed.
The scheme was initially announced by then Education Secretary Nicky Morgan in 2015, who set out long term plans to recruit 1,500 high quality teachers into the Service.
However, figures obtained by TES show that an initial pilot did not have the desired uptake, attracting just 116 applications.
Of those 116 applications, only 54 teachers were recruited, and only 24 of those have so far been matched with schools.
A DfE spokesperson told TES that ‘following a review of the outcomes’ the scheme had been abandoned.
The scheme will involve 250 pupils wearing specially adapted backpacks to and from school for a week
