Workforce resilience and wellbeing

People matter: if Trusts are to build sustainable infrastructures to lead change, improve schools and  respond to legacies of the pandemic. The strongest Trusts understand their responsibilities and duties as employers– they are good employers. They recruit, develop, deploy and retain great teachers, support staff and leaders throughout their careers, supporting their development by using  evidence informed professional development and ensuring a manageable work-life balance, paying close attention to wellbeing. Trusts as employers have a vital role in wellbeing and building sustainable people strategies to deliver education for the public benefit.
