EP 27: Practical Strategies For Addressing Increased Teacher Workloads

View descriptionShare

Workload continues to be a top stressor for staff in schools across Australia. Yet, reducing workload feels like a daunting task when there are growing staff shortages, when student behaviour is more concerning than ever before, and when departmental directives mean more tasks are added to everybody’s plate.  

While it may feel like there is no way around this issue, I want to reassure you there is plenty we can do as leaders to ease the impact of workload for staff. 

In this solo episode, I cover:

  • The key factors affecting teacher workload
  • Ways to address our school workload problem
  • Practical solutions to common workload challenges
