Details

Eleven projects have received funding of up to £30,000 to carry out collaborative research projects into efficient and effective approaches which reduce unnecessary workload.

The research projects will build on the principles and recommendations from 3 independent reports into workload.

Lead schools will be working with professional researchers and their school partners to investigate current practices and develop long-term solutions to better manage teacher workload.

We expect projects to be completed by the end of the summer term 2017 and findings from the research to be published in spring 2018.

This information is for:

  • teachers who’d like to develop long-term solutions to better manage teacher workload
  • schools, teachers and others looking to find out more about the research projects taking place
