The Government has attracted people to the PGCE by offering money, and then encouraged them to stay in teaching by offering more money. Do these people really want to teach? Or has the money attracted them? On leaving sixth form I opted for a route with teaching in all four years of my course. Now the Government says those who entered the profession this way do not need a "golden hello". Does this mean it sees these teachers as more likely to stay in teaching without the bonus?
