New workload tool targets teacher burnout

24 April, 2024

Unsustainable workloads and work intensification in schools remain the primary reasons behind record-low levels of teacher recruitment and retention.

IEUA Federal Secretary Brad Hayes said these challenges demand a wide-ranging response from school employers, educational authorities and governments; the finalisation of a new national teacher workload assessment tool is an important part of the larger plan needed to begin to tackle workload.

“The federal government is to be commended for developing the workload assessment tool in collaboration with the IEU and other education unions,” Mr Hayes said.
