Free Reducing Teacher Workload Events - Summer 2019

09 April 2019

Friday 17 May in London, Thursday 23 May in Manchester 

The DfE, in collaboration with school leaders and teachers across the country, is holding two national events to showcase work that is currently being done in schools to effectively reduce teacher workload. This work is based on updates to the DfE’s Workload Reduction Toolkit which were published on 15 March this year. Each event will start with a presentation from Sean Harford, National Director, Education, Ofsted, speaking on school workload and the Education Inspection Framework 2019, and will include other keynote speakers such as Ben Levinson, Headteacher of Kensington Primary School, on workload and school culture. These will be followed by the opportunity to participate in workshops run by serving teachers and leaders linked to their work on workload reduction and the toolkit. There will also be the opportunity to hear an update from the DfE.

Members of senior leadership teams from all types of schools are encouraged to attend and to invite the chair/a member of their governing board due to the strategic link between workload and recruitment and retention. There will be a specific workshop for governors. The event will be interactive with opportunities to learn new approaches, discuss strategies and share your work. Register for your place here.
