Excessive workload is the most commonly cited driver for teachers leaving the profession and 33% of teachers leave the profession within the first five years. The Teacher Workload Survey 2016 identified that teachers with less than six years’ experience have higher workload than more experienced colleagues. School leaders, induction tutors, mentors, appropriate bodies and teachers themselves can use this advice to help remove the burdens that might be associated with the first five years of a teacher’s career. This should build from the support and advice early career teachers have received from their ITE provider during their training period, statutory induction, wider advice in the workload reduction toolkit and the three independent workload reports on marking, planning and data management. This guidance has been developed by the sector and will continue to evolve as further evidence, case studies and advice becomes available, including the outcomes from the strengthening QTS consultation.
