No-one would disagree that workload has increased. Some serious thinking needs to be done to address this. There are three main areas, which have been identified by the profession, unions and the Department for Education which are causing additional workload. This course will explore those aspects of teacher practice which have greatest impact on workload and which can be addressed by reconsidering a demanding curriculum, what counts as information about pupils’ progress and how proper feedback trumps shallow marking.

Take action on workload with ATL. Since the beginning of our workload campaign we’ve visited over 1,000 workplaces across the UK to discuss workload. We organised over 50 bespoke CPD events tailored to your specific workload issues. We created new advice on marking, lesson planning, and data because these were the issues you were struggling with the most. Our tracker is continuing to give us insights into the most pressing areas of workload to tackle, giving us the evidence we need to back up discussions with key policy makers. We want you to keep filling in the tracker, sharing your tips on twitter using the hashtag #Make1Change and telling us about the workload issues you face.
The conference will feature a #Make1Change ATL workload campaign briefing/update, a full day of high quality CPD, with a focus on time-saving Teaching and Learning strategies and a networking lunch.
