This thread was posted on here. An example of a teacher being in a position to resist additional workload. It's a good read, but I'll summarise it below for the sake of this thread https://community.tes.com/threads/i-just-had-a-visitor.786510/ School wants staff to produce evidence for Performance Management. Teacher is supply worker, says don't work for you not interested in your PM process. Additional work is resisted. Is this actually the solution to ever-growing teacher workloads? Apologies if this has been done to death already; but my current job is to dissect problems and find solutions with no consideration for the status quo. You get some odd solutions sometimes, but its nice to be free of constraint/tunnel vision when it comes to looking a things. Problem - teachers have excessive workload. They struggle to resist additional demands because it jeopardises their job, and alternate employment is likely to be the same. Solution - teachers no longer work for schools but are self-employed / agency employed as the norm. They are paid hourly rates to produce lesson resources and deliver those lessons. Performance in the role is determined through a set of agreed KPIs (just like every other contractor relationship). Professional development will come via agency (or self if SE); as will ITT. Thoughts?
