State and independent teachers’ workload: links with stress and attainment


By 2025 England’s secondary schools will need more than 30,000 additional teachers; resolving workload is key to attracting and retaining teachers. Our research projects have focused on understanding state and independent teachers’ workloads and the ways in which they vary according to sector. We also identify which elements of workload contribute to teachers’ stress and job satisfaction, and consider workload’s impact on pupil attainment. Our workshop will present new ideas on how schools and teachers may spend time and provide opportunity for discussion among participants.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
