The DfE Teacher Workload Unit, in collaboration with school leaders and teachers across the country, is running a series of regional events to showcase work that is currently being done in schools to effectively reduce teacher workload.

Each event will start with a presentation from a key note speaker (such as Sean Harford, National Director, Education, Ofsted or the Chairs of the independent review groups on workload). This will then be followed by the opportunity to participate in workshops run by serving teachers and leaders who have successfully established approaches to reducing workload in their schools, linking to the review group reports on reducing workload. These can be found here.

Leaders from all types of schools are encouraged to attend and consider attending with a member of their governing board due to the strategic link between workload and recruitment and retention. The events are specifically intended for those leaders who have not attended a reducing workload event in the past, but all are welcome as the day will be interactive with opportunities to share approaches that are working. Events will be in centrally located venues, close to public transport links.
