The session will present my research on teacher mental health. It explores the causes of mental ill health in teachers and the impact of teacher mental ill health on teaching and on pupils. I will discuss some solutions to the problem which extend beyond reducing teacher workload. The research is based on the views of 850 teachers across the UK.
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.
