Different aspects of occupational well-being are examined, such as workload, work-life balance, relationships with colleagues and pupils at work as well as with parents, financial security, stress, health, autonomy and career development.
The research asks:
- what are the current levels of teacher well-being in schools and FES providers?
- do levels of well-being at work vary across different dimensions for example by job role or education phase?
- which positive and negative factors affect teacher well-being?
- which factors do teachers consider as most influential to their level of well-being?
- which factors could be linked to low or high levels of teacher well-being?
The report uses a mixed method design, combining quantitative and qualitative analyses, to arrive at findings. The main objective is to provide evidence-based recommendations for further action.
