Survey shows Island teachers are struggling

Over 75% of teachers on the Island say their job has had an adverse impact on their mental health in the past year.

A wellbeing survey, done by the NASUWT, shows 88% of teachers who responded said their workload has increased in the last 12 months. 

Over half of secondary teachers are having to cover lessons for absent colleagues at least once a week, and only 15% felt their school takes their wellbeing seriously. 

Dr Patrick Roach, General Secretary of the NASUWT, says the DESC must recognise, that without action, there is a risk of a work-related stress, anxiety and depression epidemic in schools.
