Motion #17
  • Inner London

THAT Conference notes with concern the rise in the numbers of education professionals who have cut their employed hours from full time to part time in order to try to regain an effective life-work balance. Conference also notes that often these part-time workers still work fulltime hours.

Conference therefore instructs the Executive Committee to put forward to the Joint Executive Council that the Joint Executive Council:

(i) survey part-time members to establish the extent of the issue

(ii) lobby the Government to address the issue of workload within the education profession and to ensure that those working in education can achieve an effective life-work balance.
