Govt Prioritises Flexible Working In Schools

New pilot programmes have been announced by education secretary Justine Greening to look at how teachers can be supported and employed flexibly, as well as improving coaching schemes for those women working in education.

Speaking at the ARK All Saints Academy in Camberwell to reps from Teach First, industry players and teaching unions, Ms Greening said: “Progress on more flexible working is great for schools who can keep their valued teachers and great for teachers who can stay in the profession.

“This is already happening in many other sectors – it’s vital we ensure it is happening in our schools too so we continue to attract the best and brightest into teaching.”

The new plans include a pilot programme to see how schools are already supporting careers of part-time teachers, updating existing guidance on flexible working so schools know what works and what doesn’t, and a pilot programme to improve the Women Leading in Education coaching offer to help women access the professional development support they require.

If you’re wondering how best to facilitate flexible working in your school, you might want to look into VoIP business phone systems to see how you could benefit. One of the biggest advantages of making use of such a service is that people are able to work remotely from wherever they are while still enjoying the same phone functionality that they would while in the office or on school grounds.

If you want your staff members to be as productive when working from home as from school, then you really must look into VoIP today.
