Good Leadership is Essential for Preventing Teacher Burnout

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 due to teacher burnout.

Good leadership skills are 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.

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 and decrease teacher burnout. 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 

Educators with good leadership skills are brilliant collaborators, 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 are good leadership skills too, so leaders who can see the bigger picture and create long-term strategies are great assets to any institution.
