Learning to Manage Workloads as a Teacher

Posted on September 4, 2017 at 2:44 pm

Teachers have one of the busiest and most challenging jobs around. Who else can say they have to manage groups of 30 people and make sure they achieve great results, without them even necessarily wanting to be there? You will be incredibly busy as a teacher so you need to manage your workload well.

Luckily, there are lots of steps you can take to make your workload more manageable. Make sure you are incredibly organised and know your priorities. Every day, reorganise your priorities and make sure everything will be done well.

You will also need to rely on other people and use their expertise as well as you can. Ask your department leader and the senior members of staff in your school for support whenever you need it.

Look for new ways to do things. If you find marking takes too long, look for new processes. You could get your pupils to help out.
