Given that teacher shortage is an international problem (and not to mention parental fears of a educator exodus due to the current situation in Shanghai), Britannica International School Shanghai is proud to announce that their teacher retention rate over the past three years has been 86%, 84% and 82% respectively.

This is well above the international and local average, and has been a key factor in its continued growth and school improvement. With a confirmed retention rate of 84% this academic year, they remain in a position of great strength.

More than that, they have already filled all of their newly available positions with highly qualified, international quality educators, well ahead of the start of the 2022-23 school year.

“While retaining such a high percentage of teachers is an important factor, finding high quality staff to replace our departing teachers is also crucial,” explains Principal Paul Farrell. “Having planned our staffing long term, combined with early recruitment, we have 100% of teaching staff secured for the new academic year.”
