One of the many challenges facing school leaders is how to manage a workforce that is, on the one hand, highly valued, but on the other, is maturing, prompting school leaders to consider innovative retention strategies and ways of working that will enable the school to optimise its performance and meet the needs of maturing staff.
This was the debate held at the Lambeth branch recently, from which we have developed the 'Supporting a mature workforce' advice document. Thanks are extended to Brian Hazel, Headteacher and Branch Secretary and his colleagues for a lively, informative and enjoyable session. We hope that members across England, Wales and Northern Ireland will be able to draw on this particular advice.
