Responding to the annual Teacher Wellbeing Index from Education Support, Dame Alison Peacock, CEO of the Chartered College, said:
“At its best, teaching is one of the most rewarding and valuable careers, supporting pupils to learn and to grow, influencing their love for subjects and their enthusiasm to keep learning through their lives. Unfortunately, as this report shows, education staff are increasingly stressed and exhausted as they face continuing growth in workload and declining resources.
“The Chartered College supports the call for ambitious plans to improve staff wellbeing and workload. In particular, we know that high quality professional development and sharing expertise is vital to developing the positive cultures that keep staff in the profession. We call on the Government to ensure that all staff have the time and resources to take part in collaborative, research-informed development opportunities.”
