Last fall the Supreme Court of Canada decided to fulfil class strength and
the other requirements of the schools which lead the district into huge trouble
as after this decision they had to hire 3000 teachers to accomplish the order
decided. They were in search of teachers who could teach number of classes like
math, science, computer, French and special education. Though there was an
another big issue for them that was allotting the classrooms as the class size
needs to be low now, such that they had to convert computer labs into
classrooms and created many portable schools for the year.

However recruitment strategies were in process to hire the best
candidate as soon as possible, which was challenging as it has been never done
before. They were getting applicants from other provinces, and the people with
BC teacher certificate from out of the country and hired the retired teachers as
well. Though it was really hard for them to check qualification and references
of every single candidate which takes lot of time and put more pressure on the
hiring staff. British Columbia has high rental prices with lower income as everybody
some loans going on which leads the ministry of education to increase the wage
and helped them with removing the education fee from  teachers to improve their skills or to get
more qualified which requires them stay longer in the province and in the same
occupation as well.

I totally agree with recruitment strategy they used and were almost successful
in this challenging situation, as they have taken so many good decisions or
steps to accomplish their hiring process of many teachers in less number of
time. Including the decision to do hike in the teacher’s salary or wage from
the beginning which will motivate many people to get into the job, however as
they asked the ministry for forgiveness of student loan for teachers to develop
their skills which could turn into a bad decision later as this can turn so
many full time teachers to part time employees thus could create the same situation
in future. In my opinion I would say that the ministry should put the limit on age
to forgiveness of loan or else they could get into the same problem again.

As we know that the strategic recruitment is considered with two factors
which are external factors and internal factors. The external factor is
associated with four sub- factors includes, the labour market, economic
climate, laws and regulations and the competition. Though the internal factors
include the mission statement, organizational, values, strategic goals.

All the Schools
board/ district has same vision, values and goals. They dedicated to students success,
the advancement of connection with, dynamic students and involved, capable
subjects is the essential main factor in each part of day by day activities and
future planning. They are collaborative as the staff, guardians and group work
in trust to guarantee to give a world-class instructive experience and safe
condition customized to the one of a kind requirement and objective of each and
every student. Main thing associated with schools are the innovation such that
anyone could know how creative or innovative their child could be, esteem, support and regard inventive ways
to deal with instruction and imaginative answers for challenges anticipate that
staff will step up with regards to stay momentum on best practices while expanding
on an establishment of research and information. Though every school has the
similar but their staff makes them great and put them side from other schools
by showing how passionate their staff is which ensures the quality of study
provides from the school. Implementing
diversity recognize and commend assorted variety and attest the significance of
our regular humankind, they viewpoints, societies and encounters as an entryway
to teaching youngsters about their parts in their communities and worldwide
society. On the other hand after considering their values and goals they made
job description which allows the job analysis to verify and gather all the information
about the duties and requirements to be fulfil to become a professional teacher
and get hired by any school such that the job description includes, Making use of audio-visual high-tech
devices(such as means of communication aids; projectors) and other adaptations
during the delivery of the lessons; Teaching according to the educational requirements,
abilities and realization of the specific students and groups of students; Sharing
in any believable and practical way in the effective management, order and
discipline of the school; similarly the teachers job description has the number
of duties to describe the role of teacher.


The recruitment is associated with two traditional recruitment source
which includes the internal recruitment and external recruitment. Internal candidates
gives the known people to the organization. They are more motivated and thus
tends to have more job satisfaction but it has it drawback as well which states
that it may lead to a workforce which is diversified and it takes a lot of time
to find a right candidate as the internal applicants are evaluated  before than the external candidates  The sources to attract internal candidates are
internal job posting, in this process the organization use to post job
vacancies on their bulletin boards, ads in company’s newsletter, announcement in
the meeting or the paper circulated in the required department. The process can
be done through nomination as well as in this the other employee nominates
someone who meets all the criteria and the job requirements especially the
KSAOs. I would recommend this strategy as most of teacher has friend of their
same profession such they could help the district for applicant pool and could
create the opportunity for many people.

The external candidates can be attracted by giving job advertisement
with requirements of the job and it should answer all the question for the
people so that no one could waste their time and money in the hiring process. The
question related to the are- whom they are trying to reach? how large is
applicant pool? number of vacancies? The closing dates to apply for the job?. Most
important thing in job advertisement is to determine the use of media in their
campaign which should be reach to the maximum people to select the best for the
organization. The advertisement could be possible placed in a newspaper and
this helps to find the person who is in real need of a job and is doing the job
search. Walk ins are for the job seeker who visits to an organization and asks
to fill out an application form with resumes and are ready for interview at that
time itself. This method is inexpensive there is less expense occurred through
the company and the applicant themselves came to organization. Or else the
outsourcing could be the better way too that the organization could hire give a
contract to an employment agencies, as in Canada we have Service Canada who
allows to provide no charge access to both the parties(employer and the
employee). Recruitment can be done in educational institutions also as the
organization could plan a campaign or an event in the institution to invite the
candidates in the easiest way, it is consider as the best opportunity for both
of them as this will help the employer to find a candidate at place and not
have to do more research and for the employee it could be best option for the
start of their career.  For the district/school
board I would recommend them to use this approach to get the large applicant
pool by using newspaper media as other sources could not be much useful for
finding an applicant for this profession. Though external recruitment will make
the schools more diversified, thus it will help schools to transfer it values
and goals to students in effective manner and create the beautiful and creative
mind. These small things can bring the revolutionary change against many social

The factors that could attract an
eligible and the required candidate could done by telling everything about the
organization (eg. Location, size, industry, values, image, reputation,
operational environment, etc.) which creates the interest in the candidate to
apply and to get the job, however the teachers may consider the location mainly
as the other are similar for maximum institutions as everybody has everything different
to say through their experience. As were being hired for British Columbia,
where the rental accommodation is higher in consideration to the wage rate for which
the application was given to the Ministry Of Education to raise the salary for
teacher and to forgive their student loan, which will make them interested to
study further and to polish their skills. The values that would be represented
to the internal candidates would not make much difference for them as they
already know so much about the organization, familiar with the processes,
goals, vision and ‘way of doing things’.

 For the external candidates they should
consider value of quality education in the name of school to maintain the
goodwill and provided with all the opportunities without any difference,
the innovative hopeful has the ability to keep on
growing into future developments and therefore does not block a modification
way to the most senior positions of authority. Now it is the recruitment staff
duty to select the best applicants from the applicant pool with the organization
fit, means It is frequently utilized as employing supervisors can use to
clarify the applicants values, qualities and methods for working with other
individuals either do or don’t fit into that specific association’s method, or
is an employee really motivated and wanted to work with the association for the
longer period of time.
