In response to the issue of workload, the Secretary of State launched the 'Workload Challenge' in 2014. A year later, 2015, three reports were produced on each of the principal workload areas: marking, lesson planning and data management. Two years after the Workload Challenge was launched, the Teacher Workload Survey 2016 report identified that 93 per cent of respondents felt workload in their schools was a fairly serious problem and 52 per cent cited it as a very serious problem.
But what is your union doing about workload? We will continue to meet the DfE to represent the concerns and views of our members. We will continue to ask our members about their workload-related issues to inform our discussions with the DfE's working groups. And our General Secretary Paul Whiteman has written to the Secretary of State to highlight the significant workload issues our members face and emphasise how it continues to be a major problem.
