Education chiefs came together in Norwich to discuss hiring - and keeping - teachers.
The event at Sewell Park Academy, on St Clements Hill, was organised by national education charity Teach First, and saw people including Norwich North MP Chloe Smith attend.
The event also saw talk turn to the Norwich Opportunity Area project, a government scheme which saw the fine city identified as one of 12 social mobility coldspots around the country.
The city has received a share of a £72m cash pot to boost social mobility, the measure of how someone improves their life chances.
Ms Smith said: 'Thank you to Teach First for organising this event which focused on important issues.
