    Workload Reduction for Staff Retention

    Teachers in the intervention group saved an average of 3.45 hours a week by replacing written methods with verbal ones.

    March 2018 research report

    Who is the programme for?

    The programme is targeted at middle leaders with subject or key stage responsibilities and/or senior leaders who want to reduce teacher workload and improve teacher wellbeing whilst maintaining quality provision.

    What is involved?

    The programme will share the findings from the alliance’s own research project and the difference it made to teachers and pupils as well as good practice from a wide range of schools across the region. The programme then supports leaders to design and implement changes to their own approach to workload reduction by helping them to:

    • Audit teachers’ perceptions of workload across a range of areas
    • Explore the DFE and EEF evidence about workload and explore a range of possible approaches to workload reduction
    • Design their own strategy to reduce workload and track its impact
