Supporting Our Teachers

From the early stages of home-based learning to the return to the classroom, our teachers have supported thousands of young people in Wales through one of the most difficult periods in living memory. Yet currently one in three teachers are quitting the classroom within their first five years due to workload and working conditions.

While teachers’ pay and conditions are decided by Welsh Government, local authorities can influence and improve the school and classroom environment, by:

  • Appointing more non-teaching staff, including teaching assistants, to support pupils’ needs alongside their education
  • Ensuring that teachers are given sufficient time and are supported to access continual professional development
