Abstract

How much interest is there among our school-leavers in becoming teachers? Are we doing enough to recruit young people into the profession? And what is driving young people's choices of profession? This article, based on a study by Michael Cosser and Sekinah Sehlola, Ambitions Revised: Grade 12 Learner Destinations One Year On, addresses these topical questions.
