Teacher workload survey

CFE Research and the Warwick Institute for Employment Research (IER) are currently undertaking the Teacher Workload Survey on behalf of DfE. The overall objective of this research is to conduct a survey in spring 2016 which will be the first in a biennial series that will monitor teacher workload and working hours. These will be designed to work with the 5-yearly OECD TALIS survey and will address a representative, robust sample of teachers and headteachers in most phases and sectors of education (with the exception of independent schools, sixth form colleges and Pupil Referral Units). CFE recruited a representative sample of schools through which an online survey was disseminated to teachers with the support of key contacts within those schools.
