According to research by global recruitment specialist, HAYS, 70% of teaching professionals have admitted to feeling drained after work. Another 62% have said they often feel stressed at work, and furthermore, 20% of new teachers leave within their first two years.
Good leadership is vital if schools want to prevent teacher burnout, making our EdD Professional Doctorate in Educational Leadership course one of the most important platforms for professionals looking to move into management.
This is also a great time to gain further qualifications at doctoral level at the University of Bolton, as we are offering a 2020 master’s bursary. Students can receive up to £3,000 to support their Postgraduate studies. Find out more here.
Happy teachers lead to retention
As well as creating a better workplace culture and improving communication, great leadership can help teachers feel valued and supported. This leads to better retention, and as a result, reduced staff turnover. Not only does retention remove the burden of recruitment, but it also improves teaching quality, therefore creating a better experience for students.
Preventing teacher burnout through leadership
Great leaders are brilliant collaborators and motivators, and are always ready to listen to feedback. A strong sense of teamwork is key, and a supportive, “no-blame” culture is needed if schools are to improve teacher wellbeing.
Managing politics and policy influences is crucial too, so leaders who can see the bigger picture and create long-term strategies are great assets to any institution.
