Supporting our critical workers in education
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the vital role of teachers, who continue to show extraordinary dedication and commitment. We at DfE are profoundly grateful for the hard work of everyone in the profession.
We’re taking action to address some of the common issues that teachers face in the classroom and have collaborated with schools to:
- develop a workload reduction kit(opens in new window)
- invest £10m in behaviour hubs(opens in new window) so schools with exemplary pupil behaviour can help other schools improve
- increase flexible working opportunities(opens in new window) for teachers
Teacher mental health is an important focus for DfE. Read our Teaching blog(opens in new window) to learn more.
