Teachers need more training and education to support young people

Teachers are key adults in most children's lives and the life chances of a young person can be dependent on their teacher. A teacher's role therefore goes well beyond the remit of their job of teaching knowledge, and they need the support and education to undertake that role.

Why the contribution is important

This is important because a teacher also needs to act as personal support and a social worker and parent. To be able to do this well they need more training than just training to do their teaching job.
