Head teachers are threatening not to train new recruits to the profession, in an open challenge to the government's plans to prevent early retirements, the London Standard reports (p17).

The change to pension regulations, shifting the cost of early retirements from the treasury to local authorities and schools, comes into effect from 1 April.

Teachers leaders claim it will be harder for teachers to retire early, leading to an ageing and expensive workforce.

The National Association of Head Teachers is today advising schools to withdraw from any teacher-training initiative until a better solution could be found.
