The Maths of Workload

Recent DfE report suggests teachers are working on average 54 hours a week. (see the TES article here)

There are 39 weeks in a school year

that is 2,106 hours

_______________

Let’s say the average worker does 48 weeks in a year at 37 hours

that is 1,776 hours

_______________

A difference of 230 hours

______________

230 hours is 6.2weeks of work for an ‘average worker’ doing their 37 hours a week

_______________

So an average teacher works a month and a half more each year than an ‘average worker’

_______________

Teachers also work in their holidays

If only this post wasn’t just being read by teachers

  1. It’s 38 weeks in a year with the kids, plus one week of inset so 39 in all. Not 36. So even worse than you say.
