Commenting on the new Minister for Education Jeremy Miles’s latest announcement on plans to “create space” for schools, Dr Patrick Roach, General Secretary of the NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union, said:

“The Minister should be taking the opportunity to make commitments that will win the support of the generality of teachers, not just school leaders.

“The level of workload in schools has left classroom teachers, middle leaders and school leaders at breaking point. Schools cannot be expected to deliver the New Curriculum unless action is taken to reduce the workload of the profession across the board.
“The Welsh Government has to demonstrate that it is listening and acting on the concerns of all teachers.

“The NASUWT has made it clear through the Managing Workload and Reducing Bureaucracy Group what the main drivers of teacher workload are and these need to be addressed if teachers are to have the time to build the New Curriculum next year.”
