Education organisations in Wales join forces to help reduce teachers’ workloads

Education organisations in Wales have demonstrated their joint commitment to helping teachers balance their workload. The Cabinet Secretary for Education, Kirsty Williams and Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Education, Meilyr Rowlands today launched resources that focus on how teachers can reduce unnecessary activity.

A staff room poster and pocket guide highlight what teachers should and should not do when they are planning lessons, marking and assessing and collecting data, as well as clarifying Estyn’s expectations.

The pocket guide will be sent to every registered teacher in Wales and every school will receive a staff room poster. They will also be available online at
