Abstract

Recently retired physics teachers are recruited and trained through the teaher education department of a university in the midlands of England to provide physics subject specific mentoring for early career physics teachers. Research is ongoing to understand any effects on the retention of teachers in the profession and effective ways of harnessing the expertise of experienced teachers who would like to contribute in this way.
