The annual turnover rate of full-time teachers has reached its highest level in over a decade.

A survey by the Employers' Organisation found annual turnover has risen by 3% to 12.8%.

During 2000, 46,000 full-time, permanent teachers changed jobs - of these 23,000 moved to other teaching posts and 7,000 retired.

The south-east and London had the higher turnover rates. The area of least activity was in Wales.

The National Employers' Organisation for School Teachers, which represents all education departments in England and Wales, commissioned the survey.

A spokeswoman said: 'The upward trend reflects the relatively buoyant labour market, where teachers have increased opportunities not only within the education service but also outside the service.'
