Chief executive Anthea Millett was ambushed at this week's Fabian conference on teacher supply by one Birmingham head who told her that the booklet was useless.
"Ninety-seven per cent of my pupils are Muslim and we're trying to encourage talented ones into teaching," Thelma Probert of Golden Hillock Comprehensive told her. "I can't put this in my careers library."
Thelma was less than impressed with Anthea's reply - that it underlined the "woeful shortage" of ethnic-minority teachers. A TTA spokesman admitted it was "probably a bit silly" not to have put any teachers from minorities in the brochure - though they have appeared in posters.
A new booklet comes out in July and can be expected to be more representative.
