High-Yield Recruitment Strategies

This initiative had 2 objectives:

  1. To conduct research to inform higher-potential recruitment strategies and test these strategies using collaborative partnerships and pilot projects.

  2. To develop a guide for English-language school boards that supports the effective recruitment and hiring of FSL teachers. The FSL Teacher Recruitment Guide for English-Language School Boards is a resource for English-language school boards in Canada.

FSL Teacher Recruitment Guide for English-Language School Boards

The Recruitment Guide is intended to provide human resources (H.R.) professionals, program superintendents/directors, curriculum leaders, communications officials, and information technology (I.T.) specialists with specific strategies that have been used in school boards across Canada. The strategies in the Guide are informed by research conducted as part of the initiative to produce a comprehensive list of higher-yield strategies for recruitment and hiring of FSL teachers across Canada.

This video looks at the research related to the recruitment and hiring of FSL teachers and introduces several promising practices:
