London South TSA are currently running a DfE/TSC-funded project supporting schools to use the Workload Reduction Toolkit. The Toolkit was developed in response to the Workload Challenge surveys, research projects and reports from the working parties. London South TSA has been designated by the Teaching Schools Council to support schools in Hampshire, Kent, Surrey, Sussex and South London to use it effectively and to evaluate its impact. You can read further details in this Workload Reduction Toolkit flyer.
The issue of teacher workload is more timely than ever before. We have seen, through leading a Workload Challenge research project, how addressing teacher workload can be a huge game-changer in terms of:
- Recruitment and retention
- Work/life balance and wellbeing
- Allowing teachers to focus on activities that have the strongest impact on pupil outcomes
