There are record numbers of teachers employed in the UK currently. And the Department for Education says there are 13,100 more full-time equivalent teachers working than there were in 2010. What’s more, the teacher vacancy rate is just 0.3 per cent. So why do so many believe Teacher recruitment is in big trouble?

When the UK government launches its ‘GOV.UK Verify’ initiative next year, it will incorporate a biometric element to speed up and improve authentication. The initiative is in a public beta stage at the moment, available for anyone to try. It aims to make logging into government services simple and easy – something biometrics could be perfect for.

School Catering Receives New Professional Standards

These new standards will hopefully become part of the fabric of school catering, and will contribute to improving standards in school dining rooms across the UK.

Biometric Schools on Both Sides of the Pond
There are no official figures for the number of biometric schools in the UK – but we do know that BioStore’s products and services are used in more than 3,000 schools across the country. Suffice it to say biometrics are quite common. The latest figures produced in 2014, estimated that at least 1.28 million students at the start of the 2012-13 school year were registered biometrically in schools. The research estimated 40 per cent of schools in the UK employed biometric solutions.

UIFSM Funding in Danger
Nobody would say that the first year of the UIFSM scheme was not without its problems, but it was a good step in the right direction and showed a willingness by the government to invest in and commit to improving health in schools.

Healthcare Security That Protects Patient Data
Biometrics can be an invaluable addition to any healthcare organisation. Securing patient data, providing access to authorised personnel only, and identifying patients correctly, are just some of the ways biometric security can help cut down administration time and reduce clerical errors.

The Importance of Free School Meals Demonstrated
No doubt there has been teething problems in the UIFSM introductory year and it has caused logistical and bureaucratic problems that were not foreseen. But most would argue that the scheme has been a net positive. For every school that has struggled to come to grips with the scheme, there is an equal number of, if not more, success stories.

Multi-Factor Biometric Authentication Trend Continues
Passwords, slowly but surely, are giving way to multi-factor and biometric authentication alternatives. The process has been slow and perhaps will continue at pace inadequate for some. But there is no doubt – a consensus is growing that passwords are past their sell by date.
