The agency's chief executive, Graham Holley, said: "We're seeing an unprecedented and sustained rise in enquiries about teaching. Over 1,000 people have visited our 'city seminars' for those in the financial sector considering teaching, and our new TDA Facebook pages are receiving up to 2,700 views per day."
