“The quality of education in Scotland’s schools depends in no small part on the professional capacity and wellbeing of its teachers. Teachers in Scotland work well beyond their contracted hours and working hours are rising. The workload of teachers has intensified as they address diverse learner needs and escalating behavioural and attendance issues with contracting resources.”
Professor Moira Hulme, UWS lecturer and lead researcher
“The teachers interviewed told us how much they have valued this opportunity to be heard. Their contributions offer compelling insights into the impact excessive workload has on their wellbeing, personal and family lives.”
Dr Carole Bignell, Senior lecturer at UWS
